I was about to install Debian on a machine for some ZoL development but perhaps I’ll give Ubuntu 19.10 a try instead. It’s probably a better idea to use a stable OS on the machine and develop in VMs anyway, that plan was only half baked.
Edit: bugger, the ZFS installer for Ubuntu isn’t available for another 5 days! I installed Debian as originally planned in the meantime.
Edit again: Read TFA, it’s available in the daily builds.
I am not sure how “new” any of this stuff is…
I had it briefly installed on Fedora, and you have to rebuild the driver for every kernel upgrade which takes some time.
I believe this is based off of the zfs from opensolaris, which was at zpool level 28. I have access to Solaris 11 servers and they are at pool version 44 or so?
I would definitely love to run it on linux if there were better support!
Yeah cddl and Fedora… So we have a hinky zfs repo installed for zfs to keep it “separate” and it builds a kernel module via the dkms frame work for every kernel update… Be nice if some 3rd party packager would at least build the module and package, like rpmfusion… yo well, score one for ubuntu!
