Hi, i hope this is the right place to post this, sorry if not.
I have a PC with TrueNAS installed which lately had an unplanned shutdown because of a sudden power failure. After reboot, the boot device (a mini usb drive with zfs) was not working anymore (no boot partition found).
I do not want to give up right away (especially because the drive were actually two drives in mirrored states) and at least wanted to take a look at the drives first. But trying to mount the drives on my Tumbleweed system failed with the error:
“zfs_member not configured in kernel”.
I googled a bit but found no definitive answers. Is zfs supported on linux or not? And is there a way to mount the devices on my linux system, if yes how?
I did that, installed zfs from the added repository but before reboot i also did a zypper dup because there were additional updates i wanted to install. This included a new kernel (6.3.1-2) this caused the usual kernel rebuild (i do not now if that is the correct term) during which i got zfs related errors: module not found or loaded
Nevertheless after a reboot the new kernel was the default in grub but trying to boot from it resulted in a pretty strange error, with some cryptic messages… so i just booted from an earlier btrfs snapshot (right before the zfs repository was added) and rolled back. To be sure i then installed the updates from before, got the new kernel and everything was fine. But now I am a bit scared to try the zfs stuff again… i do not want to end where i was before
