- Native ZFS encryption (including zero-knowledge send/recv support for off-site backups)
- SSD TRIM support
- Direct IO
Given the major changes to the code and this is a point-zero release, Sabayon is not yet shipping 0.8.0 in the main repositories, and probably won’t be for a while yet to come. In the meantime, if you want to test the new features, we have a new ZFS SCR repository available. This contains the latest zfs and zfs-kmod packages for the current Sabayon kernel (5.0).
If you’d like to try this for yourself, the commands required to install ZFS-on-Linux on Sabayon are:
# Install the 5.0 kernel, if you've not already done so kernel-switcher linux-sabayon:5.0 -a # Enable the ZFS SCR repository enman enable zfs equo update zfs # Install the ZFS packages equo install zfs zfs-kmod -a # Enable ZFS services on startup systemctl enable zfs.target # Reboot to the new kernel reboot
Note: SCR repositories are unofficial content and contain packages which may not have been tested, and use of packages within is at your own risk. You may wish to try them out on a test computer first. Beware also that ZFS 0.8.0 is new and may contain bugs which eat your data.
