Which Kernel should I use to install ZFS.

  • I am trying to install ZFS in OMV 4 since last 3Week.
    I read lot of thread . but none of them are working .


    I succeeded Once with Kernel 4.15. which i cant find now in Apt-Cache
    kernel 4.14 which come with ISO not working . Getting Error




    And Kernel 4.16 which is also not working ..




    I don't know what to do . really frustrated now .. |||||| All This error i getting in fresh install .

  • Didn't read the long zfs thread, huh? You need to enable the omv-extras testing repo to get zfs 0.7.9 to compile against the 4.16 kernel. The only other way around that is to disable backports (can be done in omv-extras) and install the 4.9 kernel.

    omv 5.5.5 usul | 64 bit | 5.4 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 5.3.5
    omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github


    Please read this before posting a question.
    Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

  • Yep I read that . but that 4.9 not working for me . (let me try with disable Backport) cause i want to deploy it in my production environment. so testing think is little scary . :/ Thanks for Reply ..


    Edit :: Not Working with 4.9 i disabled backport .
    Installed OMV.4
    Install Omv extra plugin
    Disable Backport
    Installed 4.9 Kernel
    boot with 4.9
    remove 4.14 Kernel
    Install ZFS . but got error ..
    Just Installed with Enable Testing Repo ([HOWTO] Instal ZFS-Plugin & use ZFS on OMV) its working ..
