I adapted a ZoL guide for putting Ubuntu Server 14.04 on ZFS root for 18.04 Bionic Beaver and desktop installations: http://vlog.averyfreeman.com/doku.php/ubuntu.18.04.desktop.on.zfs
I’m trying to make sure I have all of the information correct, I’ve run into a couple issues I’m not sure how to answer:
Does ZFS support in Ubuntu for generic kernels require the
zfs-dkms package, or is just
zfs-initramfs enough? (Do generic kernels in Ubuntu have kABI extensions?)
If anyone actually follows it, I’d like them to have a bootable system after a kernel upgrade! 🙂
Also, is there a way to prevent having to invoke
# zfs import -f and reboot after boot of updated kernel?
