  • install openSUSE Leap with root on ZFS

      zfs itself is already packaged in https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/filesystems/zfs , not sure about rest of required stuff

      I did something like our snapper for zfs / grub2 / opensolaris about 10 years ago :-) It was a high school project, but it might be fun just to try it out.

        can't log in to see the "current progress", is there a repo or a more accesible place with some instructions to make Tumbleweed run/boot on ZFS root?
