Re: ZFS on kFreeBSD
While the current status of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is interesting, I was
quite disappointed there is no ZFS support in it (at least any related
Any plans to enable this support?
End of http://lists.debian.org/debian-bsd/2009/08/msg00130.html:
If we still have more time I think we should probably have the following
- ZFS support. Kernel support should be there with the next kernel
upload, but there is still all the userland libs/tools to package.
- Keyboard configuration with console-setup.
Or, what would it take to do it? I know pretty well the packaging in
Debian, but not the specifics of GNU/kFreeBSD (ports, etc...).
In general, it should be possible to create package zfsutils
similarly as is already ufsutils.
Fou our specifics, take a look at our SVN repository
freebsd-libs, freebsd-util. Start with target get-orig-source
IMHO, for ZFS we should target 8.x kernel series.
Any help is welcome.
