Kernel config

Talk status
This discussion is done.

It should be mentioned that Kernel needs the ZLIB_DEFLATE ( https://github.com/zfsonlinux/spl/commit/42b3ce6) option enabled (which is not directly accessible). Can be enabled by selecting Zlib-compression algorithm in Cryptographic-API of menuconfig.

Feel free to mention it. This is a publicly modifiable wiki. --Maffblaster (talk) 20:01, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

TRIM support?

Talk status
This discussion is done.

Article doesn't mention anything about TRIM(aka discard) support which it appears to be unimplemented: https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/pull/1016 --EmanueLczirai (talk) 13:25, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

If it's not implemented in ZFS, then the article probably doesn't need to mention it... --Maffblaster (talk) 20:01, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Caveats

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Gonna check in with the Gentoo ZFS maintainers, as I think the bugs referenced in the Caveats section have all been closed, although whether the underlying issues are fully resolved remains another matter!! -- veremit (talk) 19:41, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

ZFS 0.8.0

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I've had issues recently building after following the guidance here for Installing into the kernel directory (for static installs). The latest version of zfs in the ZFSonLinux GIT repository is 0.8.0-rc1. This version does not appear to need a separate build of spl or zfs-kmod prior to building, and I've successfully built a new kernel today without having to emerge spl or zfs-kmod. This section could be edited to include advice specific to builds incoporating >=zfs-0.8.0. I'll draft some revised guidance, but would appreciate someone reviewing this when I'm done. -- Sdp.williams (talk) 17:39, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Hmm. Sounds interesting. Haven't recompiled for awhile but looking to do so nowish anyway (testing some EXPERIMENTAL drivers for various wifi chipsets operating in AP mode for an embedded project) so I will take a look and review your text when I get around to it in the next few days.

Installing into the kernel directory (for static installs)

It seens a mistake in the commands, it should copy-buildin the sys-kernel/spl first, and I edit it.--Harleylg (talk)
