Native ZFS on Linux
Fedora Packages

DKMS style packages for Fedora are available from the repository. These packages track the latest official upstream tag and are refreshed as new releases are made available. Packages are provided for:

  • Releases: 18, 19, 20, 21
  • Arches: x86_64

To add the repository to your system install the zfs-release package as shown below. This will add the /etc/yum.repo.d/zfs.repo file and required signing keys to your system. You can now install zfs like any other Fedora package using yum. As new updated packages are made available they will be detected and installed as part of the standard update process.

$ sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck$(rpm -E %dist).noarch.rpm
$ sudo yum install kernel-devel zfs 

In addition to the primary zfs repository a zfs-testing repository is available. This repository, which is disabled by default, contains the latest versions of zfs which are under active development. These packages are made available in order to get feedback from testers regarding the functionality and stability of upcoming releases. These packages should not be used on production systems. Packages from the testing repository can be installed as follows.

$ sudo yum --enablerepo=zfs-testing install kernel-devel zfs
