I’m old fan of ZFS and using it as root on all my devices.
Also, I tried Manjaro KDE with on my old laptop and found it amazing (KDE Neon, based on Ubuntu, is wery glitchy on i5-4300 — and original Ubuntu is more glitchy).
It’s not my first try, I did it several times for two years, and every time it ends with nothing.
I’ve found a couple of guides to do this, but all of them omits some very viable thing.
It’s not a problem to me to create pool and datasets, bootstrap system or configure mounts and bootloader.
But all of them says literally nothing about modules.
So the all are a piece of useless junk, even they occasionally worked once.
I’m able install dkms and make a module — it’s simple.
But repos doenst contain actual-for-live-cd headers.
I tried install
linuxNNN-zfs, but versions mismatch again.
And yes, I’m aware of
pacman -S <package=version> trick — but there is no versions.
I’ve read that new images already had integrated ZFS support — and tryed them.
Can you guess the result? Yeah, the same.
I’ve heard, that manjaro-architect supports it.
Well, it’s abandoned, discontinued and wiped out.
I’ve tried to build iso with
It’s not booting anyway, after enabling apropriate zfs package for live. No kernel splash, no boot menu — literally nothing except dark screen after selection boot medium.
But there this one may be my fault, I have no experience in building isos with
So… can anybody share a working recipe or help with future investigation, or Manjaro is really a subject to throw out and use pure Arch in this case? Arch having ALEZ, at least.
