Default ZFS on linux for fedora

Hello list,



*

* got a question about zfs. Has anybody have used or are usingZFS on linux in Fedora? And

* if so, is it possible to delete certain exsiting ext4 filesystems
and create zfs filesystem in there place on the same drive fedora is
installed, or do i need to add an extra drive and go from there
creating zfs filesystem within fedora?

*



Thanks for tips and* ideas :-)

I've had review requests at RPM Fusion for some time but no one has
been interested in reviewing them. They are quite complicated due to
the need to build kernel modules on a kernel update.

SPL (Solaris Porting Layer)
https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1990
ZFS
https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1991

I haven't touched them in a while so I probably need to do a more
recent checkout but feel free to test.

I'm working on updating the packages now. For some reason even though
a macro is being defined in the spec file it's not working right...
The utility packages are building fine but I'm having trouble building
the kernel modules. I'll see what I can do.

I have the latest versions posted to the review requests. I don't have
any zfs volumes to mount but I did build and install all of them
without issue.

I'm currently using ZFS on Centos 6.2 and have done so on Fedora 16 as
well. I personally wouldn't use it for anything other than "proof of
concept", as performance was really bad in my experience -- nothing like
on FreeBSD, though obviously it's not purported to be, yet.

I appreciate it, will give them a spin soon.

Thank you for your time:-)

thanks for the link, I sometimes forget fedora also has forums, since
iḿ used to only using mailing lists. :-)
