Ubuntu 15.10, ZFS 0.6.5.3…Fragile

Quick update on using a more recent version of zfs:

  • very glad I set up a user who’s home directory is not /home, because if zfs doesn’t finish a scan, no /home
  • attempting to install zfsnap, simplesnapshot, things that depend on zfsutils…all mess with kernel module
  • this was much easier back when there were less options and ppa:zfslinux-stable was available, didn’t have near this amount of difficulty
  • glad that zfs-auto-snapshot, zxfer are pretty easy to install with a Makefile
  • intrigued by zfSnap and simplesnapshot as backup tools but damned if I’m going to install them again after my .ko’s got all messed up.
  • Was hoping that 0.6.5.3 would have been promoted into 15.10 by now.

So, here’s hoping to getting a properly booting system :-)
