Broken Arch system... - Page 2

post #11 of 18
1. As far as I have seen it's made great progress. The filesystem it's self is the same, so while your connect to the daa could be at risk the data probably isn't, as far as I know. I've heard it works at least as well as btrfs, and is of course more feature full and is actually finished. Now if you were going to make a storage served I would say OI/FreeBSD is the way, but if all you want is a next-gen entrprise filesystem for the data on your pc I would perfer ZFS. Been planning to format my own /home as zfs for a while.

2. Well XFS is old it's stable- I would rather do mirroring a different way and feel safer about my data. I have to be able to shrink my partitions though, so ATM using Ext4 myself. Plan to convert my / to btrfs with wheezy but /home will be ext4 or zfs.

That is true, ZFS on Linux has come a long way in a very short time. I haven't played with it in a while, I tend to like my ZFS setups to be FreeBSD, but now is probably a good time to take another look at it.

I would make a ZFS file server freebsd as well, but for personal data nothing wrong with some zfs on linux

Okay so I was wondering what would be the best way to deal with getting ZFS gone and then rolling back kernels?

I was thinking trying..
Code:
zfs offline POOL
zpool destroy POOL
systemctl disable zfs.service

pacman -Rdd spl spl-utils zfs zfs-utils

cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg
pacman -U kernel-3.6.10-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  <-- might change to 3.6.9 or 3.6.8 if the others don't work..
mkinitcpio -p linux
reboot

I was using ZFS for just that reason. I have some data that I want kept safe and I just have it setup so I can store stuff remotely on it. I just back all the data up into my new HDD and it is safe for now. I like the idea of ZFS, but it seems that too much focus is on EXT4 and BtrFS..

**EDIT**

Okay I am at my wits end with this stupid desktop system! I have destroyed my zpool removed spl and zfs support rolled back to 3.6.10-1 kernel and it still hangs on the systemd-fsck at boot and won't actually boot! IDK what is the issue but I am about to go back and switch to another distro...

It now says:
Code:
Timed out waiting for device dev-sdb3.device. 
Dependency failed for /media/new-media.
Dependency failed for Local File Systems.

I don't understand why it is bringing up /dev/sdb3 I killed the old /var partition after moving it over to the new /var partition on my newer drive. Also my media/new_media partition was wiped. I am going to check my /etc/fstab and make sure that it wasn't accidently left in!

Question: Since it seems that my kernel is trying to mount two partitions that don't exist anymore where could that be coming from? I just checked my /etc/fstab and it is pretty clear that it doesn't show anything about those partitions...

/etc/fstab:
Code:
#
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#
# <file system>    <dir>           <type>     <options>                      <dump>    <pass>
tmpfs                    /dev/shm     tmpfs       defaults,noatime                0           0

LABEL=Swap    none            swap           sw                                    0            0

proc                     /proc            proc        nodev,noexec,nosuid       0            0

LABEL=/              /                   ext4        errors=remount-ro,defaults,rw,discard,noatime,data=ordered       0      0

LABEL=/boot      /boot           ext2        defaults                                0                0

LABEL=/home   /home          ext4       errors=remount-ro,defaults,rw,discard,noatime,data=ordered       0        0

LABEL=/var        /var              ext4        defaults,rw,realtime,data=ordered               0       2

LABEL=Storage    /media/Storage   ext4         defaults,relatime,data=ordered         0      2

Okay I guess something I modified when cleaning out my older fstab stuff that apparently wasn't commented out. So I have fixed it and I am going to upgrade back to 3.6.11-1 and see if that isn't fixed... then reboot and then redo my ZFS Mirror..

Check the labels to see if they weren't properly updated. You can do the following to check where they are pointed to on your system:
Code:
ls -l /dev/disk/by-label/

All my ZFS set ups are FreeBSD. Solid OS.

Totally agree.
