Thread: Hi all!

  1. #1

    Smile Hi all!

    I just switched back to OpenSUSE after a long time using various Linux distros, and a couple of BSD projects. I have been using Nix* since 2010, so i'm quite experienced in this world of Unix-like systems.

    I have never really used this forum, but created my profile a long time ago. I now try to use this forum more when I switched back to OpenSUSE.

    I just wanted to say hi to you all! :-)

    Thank you.

    I'm actually happy with my setup. To me, it works really well right now.

    Found that the combination of btrfs for my root filesystem, and ZFS for my multimedia partition is a rock solid combination. Well, I could just have created a secondary btrfs partition, but the ZFS disk with all my media is a leftover from my FreeBSD installation. - A solid one, so I chose to keep it. Also because it's over 200 GB data. I'm not in the mood for downloading it all from Dropbox again. :-D

    btw. Yast2 and Snapper is primarily the reason for choosing OpenSUSE again.

    Welcome back and really, it was only a matter of time before you came back anyway.

    I am interested in knowing about how you are using ZFS in openSUSE. I haven't set anything up in ZFS and I am not sure exactly how that all works. I am happily enough using BTRFS with XFS on my /home.
    If I am going to be spontaneous, I have to plan for it.

    Similar story. Started playing around with Linux and BSD around 2003 if I remember correctly. SuSE Linux is the one I started out with and it's the one that really stands out for me for productivity. It does everything I want (and much more than that), it's stable and just doesn't get in my way of getting stuff done!

    Welcome back & have a lot of fun...

    I had an existing zpool from my previous FreeBSD install, which hosts all my mediafiles on a 1.5TB rotating disk. Then I installed OpenSUSE 42.3 Leap with standard disk arrangements, filesystems and mounts, and I picked up ZFS from a one-click-installer, imported my zpool. Then I maked sure the zfs-systemd daemons were all automatically starting on boot. I run btrfs on root and xfs on /home, just standard. It's just my second drive that runs ZFS. Also, besides Snapper, I have a newly created Clonezilla image of / on a external disk just for extra safety. I have a backup of the data from the zpool in Dropbox for streaming on other devices, and also for backup. My Dropbox is a monthly paid 1TB storage, so I have some space left.

    It's a 50/50 situation for me. Because I was really REALLY happy with my FreeBSD 11 install - it just kept on freezing because of a configuration mistake somewhere in /boot/loader.conf or /etc/sysctl.conf. I was lazy, I didn't want to fix it. I could, but I didn't want to sweat. You know, sometimes you'll just have enough, thinking "that's it. This pisses me off way to much, I'll find something other." And it's not because I normally don't have the patience, it's just that I worked sooooo hard to make that install perfect for multimedia, and by then I was dellusioned by the fact that I had screwed my whole installation. So, kudos to FreeBSD for being so stable, that it requires the user by himself to screw configs up. Granted, it's often more like this in the Nix* world, than on Windows where the system itself is almost broken by default and requires minimal mistakes to really break.
