How to install ZFS native on Debian 7 or Proxmox 3.x

1) become root

sudo su –

2) Install ZFS

dpkg -i zfsonlinux_3~wheezy_all.deb
apt-get update
apt-get install debian-zfs

kernel upgrade

After updating the Kernel you most likely have to do the following steps:

make sure you have the headers installed (proxmox example)

aptitude install pve-headers-$(uname -r)

(it will pick the current running kernel version. If you just updated the kernel you better reboot first.)

ln -s /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/source
aptitude reinstall spl-dkms  zfs-dkms

That should cover you on a kernel update
