I have been following this instructions but at the last step I get following:
Package debian-zfs is not available, but is referred by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Package 'debian-zfs' has no installation candidate

thanks for all the explainations !
i was planning on setting up my filer @home with 3/4 disks (proliant microserver, with Debian wheezy)
Now i've spent a few hours reading this article, i will definitely use ZFS 🙂

By the way, about the bug you're talking about when sharing a dataset with samba, the issue is not in ZFS but samba, i've known it for a long time...
Basically, when accessing the share from a remote computer with a user/password, samba will refuse the access, because the local user on your server is NOT included in samba users list....
To do that, yout need to add it by typing
smbpassword -a your_user
then enter the password twice. then it will work 😉

A new kernel (3.7.7) was released today for the arch linux. Currently, the zfsonlinux in the aur was not adapted on it. I have updated my zfsonlinux automake tool with a more secure option. Before you are going to rebuild the zfs modules, the tool now...

Do you mean that you want to install ext4 (or something else) on / and ZFS elsewhere? In my case, I use ext4 for /, due to the GRUB problems you mention, and use ZFS for /home/, /var/cache/ and /var/log/ on my workstation. Of course, on our storage servers at work, ZFS is usually mounted to /backup/ or something else based on its function.

I've downloaded the source and compiled spl and zfs for armv5. Compilation went OK, no problem. But I got this error in building the deb (make deb):

spl-0.6.0-rc12.armv5tel.rpm is for architecture armv5tel ; the package cannot be built on this system.

Any idea why?
