ZFS Module load error [Solved]

Postby Avanesov » Fri Nov 09, 2012 3:34

I have a sabayon server install and I am trying to setup a zfs pool for data storage but the zfs modules will not load. ZFS is installed and I can add the boot and shutdown scripts for it but there is still a problem and I have no idea what is wrong.
Code: Select all
[email protected] / $ sudo /etc/init.d/zfs start
 * Starting ZFS ...
 * Checking if ZFS modules present
 * zfs not found. Is the ZFS package installed?
 * ERROR: zfs failed to start

[email protected] / $ equo search installed zfs

Do I have an incorrect package installed for ZFS or could it be an issue with the 3.6.0 kernel?

Code: Select all
[email protected] / $ sudo eselect kernel list
Password:
Available kernel symlink targets:
  [1]   linux-3.5.0-server
  [2]   linux-3.6.0-sabayon
  [3]   linux-3.6.0-server *

I notice the revision numbers are different (2824 vs 2662). Is the differance due to the different arcitectures? Does x86 not have a zfs solution? If so, then why does the userspace package show up?

From your equo status I can see your server architecture is x86, unfortunately ZFS doesn't work on that architecture right now, so ZFS kernel modules are missing.

Ahh, then that would explain it. Since "sys-fs/zfs-userspace-20120903" was showing on a search I assumed it was supported. Thanks for the reply.

If you do get ZFS online, let me know how you like it - I'm considering a new 2-3TB personal storage and there seem to be a plethora of articles about ZFS, BTRFS, VS, etc...
