Hi all, any updates on a viable ubuntu installer using zfs?
My current modus operandi is to use an ubuntu kinetic installer, and then during the install use my zfs ppa to get a more recent version of zfs (2.2.0rc1) installed for use during the install from my ppa: https://launchpad.net/~satadru-umich/+archive/ubuntu/zfs-experimental
However, as of today, I can no longer update the kinetic build on that ppa to 2.2.0rc2, as I’m getting a “kinetic is obsolete and will not accept new uploads” message. I suppose I can create a focal backport, but that’s more frustrating as that requires modifications to the source to work.
There are patches for OpenZFS 2.2 to support kernel 6.5 going in, and hopefully it will be fully supported by the release version of 2.2, but it would be nice not to have to juggle multiple versions of OpenZFS and multiple ubuntu updates to get us to a working release when I’m doing a clean install.
(I’d prefer not to use ubuntu-server-zfsbootmenu as the existing grub integration seems to work quite well…)
I guess judging by https://github.com/canonical/subiquity/pull/1731 it looks like subiquity is going to have zfs support?
