• Failed to start Mount ZFS filesystems - boot error


    I have some zfs errors while booting since my first antergos boot - it says “failed to mount zfs filesystems, cannot find antergos_j1od”, and it boots after that. So my system works and I dont understand why I got this errors.
    I dont know if this error can be somewhat dangerous for me or this is just a harmless bug.
    Here is the piece of my journalctl with errors.

  • Hi. Quick question: what is t output systemctl --failed --all .
    Have are look at that.

    What does it say there? I know that your output above states your zfs-mount.service failed. But your system also boots up fine afterwards you say.

    Is there anything related to the zfs service.
    Try sudo systemctl start zfs-mount.service afterwarids if it stopped or there is an error.
    What errors (if any) are you reading?

    Perhaps pacman is creating a package cache somewhere which in turn might prevent ZFS to mount . It’s only a guess.
    can you see if zfs mount -a says anything about storage?
    Maybe symlinks are interfering to some datasets?

  • Hey again.

    Unfortunately my system died after some kernel-updates, so I guess it wasnt so harmful after all… And I’m back on the ext4.
    Im an enthusiast of ZFS on Linux but it needs some work yet, ie. I was not able to use my backup-lts kernel (4.9.x.x) because it wasnt compatible with ZFS somehow (also no boot, predictable but I didnt saw it).More of that, archzfs(arch repo) seems to be a different thing so I couldnt use snapshot even from arch, incompatible zfs-modules and some errors.Wasted lof of time, I have to back to my stuff.

    I think ZFS can surpass my old notebook, and its pretty risky on a one hard-drive installation.I will back to it in some future probably.
    Thank you for reply anyway!

    Cheers.

    No problem. I’m sorry that things didn’t work out as planned.

    as a side note, ext4 is still the best in my opinion.
    zfs? well, I’ve tried it before with not much success in having it work without issues. For myself, ext4 historically has been problem-free.

  • @Modisc said in Failed to start Mount ZFS filesystems - boot error:

    En cuanto a mí, ext4 históricamente ha estado libre de problemas.

    And that is what counts !
