The Z File System (ZFS)

The command in this page has been tested with 5.7 kernel only, not with 5.8 and later. Please let us know if you have success with newer kernel version


Instead of installing the zfs-dkms package, I've tried to build the latest version 0.8.4 from Github and zfs*.ko can be built with these commands. I've not tested if zfs work or not, so please do at your own risk.

Check kernel version
