install xfs jfs btrfs kernel support

under debian this is pretty simple, those commands will download and install the missing kernel modules…

apt-get install xfsprogs; # install xfs support
apt-get install jfsutils; # install jfs support
apt-get install btrfs-tools; # install btrfs support
apt-get install f2fs-tools; # install f2fs support

apt-cache search zfs; # no package for zfs
golang-go-zfs-dev - Go library for ZFS manipulation
libguestfs-zfs - guest disk image management system - ZFS support
simplesnap - Simple and powerful network transmission of ZFS snapshots
zfs-fuse - ZFS on FUSE


try out xfs first

it is way easer to get started than with ZFS – the so called pro-filesystem that requires EEC memory and ain’t easily installed on Debian.

how to install ZFS on Debian based systems? –
