zfs-fuse version 0.2.0 released


If you were jealous of my previous post, now you can play with ZFS on Linux too ;)

Just head over to the download page and follow the README.

Note that it's still not possible to mount ZFS filesystems, so you won't be able to read or write files, however you can already manage ZFS pools and filesystems.

As always, you should report any bugs or problems to rcorreia at wizy dot org, or by using the bug database.

Have fun!

I've successfully complied release 0.2.0 on Fedora, using Dag's rpm for SCons. I've tried ztest for 300 seconds, and everything works as expected - No problems.

Linux 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3
NPTL 2.3.6
gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 20050721

Well done Ricardo!

Well done! I would like it to be included in the linux kernel, as default file-system.

Great work! Hope you will have time to port it completely :)
bob hunter: It's not possible due to licensing issues. CDDL (license of ZFS) is not compatible with GPL (license of Linux kernel).

But you are not forced to use CDDL licensed ZFS code, it can be reimplemented from the ground, so there won't be any license issues and it can be licensed under GPL. I would be very happy if someone implement it in Linux kernel...
