Hi! Don’t know if this counts as noise, but I figured I’d make an introductory post.
I’m a 20-something embedded software engineer who likes to self-host. I use Linux for my laptop and NAS, with ZFS on both.
While I wasn’t involved in Reddit, I heard about this Discourse instance while lurking in the Late Night Linux Telegram group. I decided to join to show my support for the community as it tries to find its legs outside of Reddit.
I don’t know how active I’ll be on here, as life gets busy. But hello!
Welcome! Good to see you here.
Welcome! What flavor(s) of Linux do you run with ZFS?
Don’t forget FreeBSD folks. They get kinda cranky when you call their favorite OS a “Linux distro.”
Oh for sure. I was just responding to Thanson’s mentioning that they use Linux on their laptop and NAS above
I’m running Arch, Ubuntu, and TrueNAS myself. BSD love too
I run Arch Linux on my laptop, NAS, and Vultr VPS. The laptop and VPS are both ZFS-on-root, and I think the NAS uses an ext4 boot drive. I do the DKMS package and use the LTS kernel since it breaks less often (occasionally I’ve seen incompatibilities just due to how new of a kernel Arch ships).
At a past employer I deployed some Debian storage servers with ZFS storage and ext4 boot drives.
Of course, I use Sanoid/Syncoid on all of them (thanks @mercenary_sysadmin )!
Very cool, I have Arch on my laptop and workstation as well. (Gentoo refugee ) Running Sanoid on the workstation but I need to investigate Syncoid now
