Search the openSUSE search website (which brought you several);
Search for a website of the product and see if it has an openSUSE repo;
When no openSUSE repo, try to find an RPM;
When all fails try to find a tarball and try to build yourself.
These are in increasing level of giving problems and/or questions
And about that repo. I haven’t it added, but, assuming that you did it correct (can you use see from the VIew menu: Repositories? Is it there? can you select it and see the packages?) searching with zfs should give you something. Assuming that the package name is zfsonlinux could be wrong. Why would a package on an openSUSE (thus Linux) repo has “onlinux” in it’s name?
Indeed this was the mistake
ZFS is a BSD filesystem, and so the guys who wrote zfsonlinux deliberately called their program this way.
When I searched for “zfs” instead for “zfsonlinux” in Yast, it showed up
I then exported my zpool, uninstalled the zfsonlinux installed like shown in the first post and deleted its repo.
Then I installed zfsonlinux via the repo you suggested.
What a pity that it’s even older… 0.6.4.2 instead of 0.6.5.
It even wanted a reboot. After that I re-imported my zpool and all seems to work.
Didn’t know of step 2.
Actually I went all steps 1,3, 5 and when running configure, it stumbled about missing spl lib. When googling for that I accidentally found that 1-click-installer that I mentioned in the 1st post.
The strange thing is that it was from download.opensuse.org, too, and is more recent than this “official” version you pointed me at. Thus I wonder why the “official” repo contains a so old version?!?
After I noticed that the older ZFSonLinux 0.6.4.2 does not automount imported pools I decided to try to build from tarball.
Sadly installing the generated RPMs fail because of
Error: Package: zfs-dkms-0.6.5.2-1.noarch (/zfs-dkms-0.6.5.2-1.noarch)
Requires: dkms >= 126.96.36.199-20
Installed: dkms-188.8.131.52-15.1.noarch (installed)
dkms = 184.108.40.206-15.1
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
This obsolete dkms version is the latest one being offereed by openSuse.
Dunno if it’s a good idea to try the workaround suggested.
Will now re-install the ZFSonLinux v.0.6.5 mentioned in the first post.
