HI everyone,
Has anyone noticed that Fedora seems to have a zfs-fuse rpm?
I wonder what kind of source they are using.. or if someone from our group is behind that build?

With minor tweaks to the spec file, I was able to rebuild the src.rpm for RHEL5 and RHEL6 and retain build compatibility (it worked as-is on RHEL7, which I didn't break).

I'll see if/where I can submit my patches..

List of rpms:

Cheers,

Since quite some years ago.

They are using a snapshot of Seth Heeren's old repository that only supports pool versions up to v23. That is vastly behind Emmanuel's repository (pool versions up to v26 until last weekend) and my latest feature branch (support for pool versions up to v28).
 

With minor tweaks to the spec file, I was able to rebuild the src.rpm for RHEL5 and RHEL6 and retain build compatibility (it worked as-is on RHEL7, which I didn't break).

That is a slightly up-patched version of Emmanuels version with pool support up to v26. If you want pool support v27 you'll need to use my pool28 git branch from here:
https://github.com/gordan-bobic/zfs-fuse/tree/pool28
It's working fine for me with no obvious issues for the past few months, but I would like to see some more testing of it in different scenarios before I tag it as a release. I use it on 32-bit ARM machines with only a single disk device, so redundant pools are rather untested.
