How to install zfs , zfs-kmod ,zfs-utils , zfs-dkms

zfs-dkms does not install because .config is not found in kernel sources.
The kernel configuration does not allow zfs-dkms install.
I think i might need to install the "stock" gentoo kernel.
How to fix this ?

Re: How to install zfs , zfs-kmod ,zfs-utils , zfs-dkms

sisyphus install zfs

Will pull everything needed for zfs to work, including zfs-dkms. zfs-kmod is a Gentoo ebuild, and not recommended or compatible with Redcore. zfs-dkms on the other hand works with Redcore kernels. After install, you will need to reboot, and dkms will build the kernel modules.

If you encounter an error, please let me know.

P.S.: I would recommend you use zfs with an LTS kernel.

sisyphus install linux-image-redcore-lts:6.1

for kernel 6.1.xx

or

sisyphus install linux-image-redcore-lts:6.6

for kernel 6.6.xx

or

sisyphus install linux-image-redcore-lts:5.15

for kernel 5.15.xx

It works with " install zfs". I just had to reboot.

Yes, that's how it's supposed to work. Install, reboot and done. Glad it is solved.

P.S. When the kernel gets updated, you just need to reboot, and dkms will recompile the modules for the new kernel.
