This is the first new-build in which I intend /home to be a #zfs pool.
The way it can be extended and snap-shotted and compressed and encrypted and beamed from one computer to another is neigh short of miraculous and I am super excited that my /home will always have these kinds of magic skills from now on.
The compression even makes is faster on some kinds of tasks if you're not already CPU-bound.
@pre that's still probably a DKMS package? Aren't you worried a kernel update will break it (not to mention all the recompiling every time?)
@RyuKurisu I'm backed up enough not to be worried about anything, but am interested in the perils that may be involved.
Been running zfs for the DB servers at work a couple of years. Seems to have been going okay there.
A gateway into the global open conversation in the fediverse for Boing folks and anyone they know.
