Drobbins moved page Talk:ZFS Install Guide to Talk:ZFS as Root Filesystem: renaming to make it seem less like official documentation
The == LUKS? ==See --[[User:Nikosalexandris|Nikosalexandris]] ([[User talk:Nikosalexandris|talk]]) 15:07, November 26, 2016 (UTC) == initramfs move ==the initramfs move (rename) does not seem a necessary step? to update the grub.iso files cfg, so that is GRUB will see newly named initramfs, running grub-mkconfig would be better. And name should not be relevant, then. Oleg. == Comments on the Installation Guide ==A few points regarding the new instructions of the "ZFS Install Guide" (by [[User:Nikosalexandris|Nikos Alexandris]]): - using the suggested ubuntu version, and after adding enabling the universe repository sources, poses a (minor) problem when trying to update. The proble and the solution described at* Added to Troubleshooting. [[User:Tassietux|Tassietux]] ([[User talk:Tassietux|talk]]) 11:23, November 2, 2016 (UTC) - `grub-install on /dev/disk/by-id/ata-...` failed for me initially. The newly created partition, after `sgdisk -a1 -n2:48:2047 -t2:EF02 -c2:"BIOS boot partition" /dev/disk/by-id/ata-...`, was not present under `/dev/` as `sda2`. The "fix" was1. re-read the partition table without rebooting, i.e. `partx -u /dev/sda`.2. re-emerge grub to support for i386_pc -- if I remember well... `USE="i386_pc" emerge -av grub`.* partx -u /dev/sda added to guide. [[User:Tassietux|Tassietux]] ([[User talk:Tassietux|talk]]) 11:23, November 2, 2016 (UTC) - Although all of the rest seem(ed) to be ok (ie GRUB 2 support for ZFS, verification of existence of `/boot/grub/i386-pc/zfs.mod`), trying to a USB Stick(re-)boot, fails at the step of importing the zpool. When extracting there appears The zpool failed, initially to be a name not compatible exported. I re-booted the live USB stick, chrooted all the way from the scratch, exited, exported the zpool successfully. Still no success to boot.* Have you seen ? This may help you find what went wrong. [[User:Tassietux|Tassietux]] ([[User talk:Tassietux|talk]]) 11:23, November 2, 2016 (UTC) * Problem resolved, I guess something to do with FAT32 sticks, resulting in error re-1009 'can not extract'compiling the ZFS modules.--[[User:Nikosalexandris|Nikosalexandris]] ([[User talk:Nikosalexandris|talk]]) 15:07, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
