ZFS On Mint

ZFS On Linux On Mint (LMDE)

Adapted from ZFS On Linux's instructions for Debian.

The instructions on the page fail on LMDE because the release name doesn't exist in the install script.

$ su -
# apt-get install lsb-release
# wget http://archive.zfsonlinux.org/debian/pool/main/z/zfsonlinux/zfsonlinux_6_all.deb
# dpkg -i zfsonlinux_6_all.deb

  1. Skip the last step with dpkg.
  2. Extract the debian archive ar vx zfsonlinux_6_all.deb
  3. Extract the data files. tar -xzvf data.tar.gz
  4. Copy the gpg key to the proper location: cp ./etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/zfsonlinux.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/zfsonlinux.gpg
  5. Copy the source lits to the proper location: cp ./usr/share/doc/zfsonlinux/zfsonlinux.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
  6. Edit the source and replace %DIST% with LMDE's corresponding distribution. (Currently jessie)

Follow the rest of the instructions on how to use ZFS on Linux.
