Merging with Installing Arch Linux on ZFS?
Does it make sense to keep two different articles? What about just add the sections about how-to add zfs packages to the installation media and the trouble shooting here?
- Interesting. I think it could work, but I am not sure where to place it. The installing on zfs article is very long. Do you have any ideas? Demizer (talk) 03:24, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
- I think most of the other article is actually wrongly placed. The information about the partition, formatting, and mounting are covered in the general installation guide, I am using zfs in a bios and efi system and I ignored it. What is really important is: adding zfs packages to the installation media, creating the pool and the fs for installation, and the kernel line to mount zfs root.
Max size of ZFS
On wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZFS )it is claimed that
A ZFS file system can store up to 256 quadrillion zettabytes (ZB)
This means to my understanding 256000 quadrillion exabyte. Here the claim is more moderate : 16 Exabyte. I suppose the difference comes from some 64/128 bit confusion and is of course more of theoretical interest.
