Debian GNU/Linux ZFS Rescue Disc

This is a ISO (CD image or USB flash drive image) that is based on the debian-live rescue image, but built with Linux kernel ZFS support from the ZFS On Linux project.

It includes:

It does *NOT* include zfs-fuse, which the upstream package may. That is fine, since zfsonlinux supports both the older zfs-fuse filesystems and newer ones.

This image also contains the Debian installer. However, unlike the traditional installer, installing from this image will simply copy the image contents to the disk. Debian Installer does not yet support installing to ZFS on Linux, so if you are interested in a fresh Linux install with ZFS, follow my Debian ZFS Install instructions.

This disc is also useful for converting an existing installation to ZFS.
