Date: Thursday 16th December 2010 12:44:31 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Hi everyone, following the announcement of Pawel Jakub Dawidek ([email protected]) I am providing a ZFSv28 testing patch for 8-STABLE. Link to the patch: http://people.freebsd.org/~mm/patches/zfs/v28/stable-8-zfsv28-20101215.patch.xz Link to mfsBSD ISO files for testing (i386 and amd64): http://mfsbsd.vx.sk/iso/zfs-v28/8.2-beta-zfsv28-amd64.iso http://mfsbsd.vx.sk/iso/zfs-v28/8.2-beta-zfsv28-i386.iso The root password for the ISO files: "mfsroot" The ISO files work on real systems and in virtualbox. They conatin a full install of FreeBSD 8.2-PRERELEASE with ZFS v28, simply use the provided "zfsinstall" script. The patch is against FreeBSD 8-STABLE as of 2010-12-15. When applying the patch be sure to use correct options for patch(1) and make sure the file sys/cddl/compat/opensolaris/sys/sysmacros.h gets deleted: # cd /usr/src # fetch http://people.freebsd.org/~mm/patches/zfs/v28/stable-8-zfsv28-20101215.patch.xz # xz -d stable-8-zfsv28-20101215.patch.xz # patch -E -p0 < stable-8-zfsv28-20101215.patch # rm sys/cddl/compat/opensolaris/sys/sysmacros.h >From Pawel's announcement: Some of the changes since the last patchset (zfs_20100831.patch): - Boot support for ZFS v28 (only RAIDZ3 is not yet supported). - Various fixes for the existing ZFS boot code. - Support for sendfile(2) (by avg@). - Userland<->kernel compatibility with v13-v15 (by mm@). - ACL fixes (by trasz@). - Various bug fixes. Please test, test, test. Chances are this is the last patchset before v28 going to HEAD (finally) and after a reasonable testing period into 8-STABLE. Especially test new changes, like boot support and sendfile(2) support. Also be sure to verify if you can import for existing ZFS pools (v13-v15) when running v28 or boot from your existing pools. Please test the (v13-v15) compatibility layer as well: Old usereland + new kernel / old kernel + new userland More information about ZFS on my blog: http://blog.vx.sk _______________________________________________ [email protected] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-stable To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[email protected]"
