I'm not good at understanding licenses and how they affect or exclude one another, at all. However, I see that
* spl and spl-dkms have:
* while zfs and zfs-dkms have:
Is that a problem??
("Interpreting, enforcing and changing the GNU GPL, as applied to combining Linux and ZFS")
Mageia 5 =>
Debian just decided to include zfs as contrib with a dkms packet.
And ubuntu says their legal team indicates it is legal to incluye zfs.
If it is only provided as source..yes
Provided in binary form..NO
Please see and read
Well... a dkms packet that contains the source and a builds the binary at installation may be a solution.
Mageia 6 =>
DKMS sounds good to me :)
I would try it on my fileserver if possible.
If anybody knows good GUI tools for administering ZFS that would be nice to have too.
Updating URL as page have moved.
This is High priority bug for a good reason.
Making Mageia even better than ever is best direction.
In order to do right thing, this bug should be examined and fixed as soon as possible.
Packagers, please make the status to Assigned when you are working on this.
Feel free to reassign the bug if bad-triaged. Also, if bug is old, please close it.
On October 1st 2020, we will drop priority to normal.
The ZFS on Linux project has been renamed OpenZFS
From https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=OpenZFS-2.0-Released :
Good: OpenZFS 2.0 Released With Unified FreeBSD/Linux Support, Many New Features
Problem: many Linux distributions and upstream kernel developers aren't backing it due to license incompatibilities with the upstream kernel
But maybe someone who knows this stuff could author a Mageia wiki page instead about how to get, compile, install, use, administer basics?
CC kernel&drivers, and tools maintainers for comment/consideration.

We provide zfs-fuse, but have seen articles saying it is deprecated.

And incomplete, and slow.
