Is anyone using ZFS on their Linux systems? If so, are you using ZoL (http://zfsonlinux.org/) or ZFS on Fuse (https://github.com/gordan-bobic/zfs-fuse)?
The reason I ask is because I have a client requesting it for a Debian 8 server and came across ZoL first. I followed the instructions at http://zfsonlinux.org/debian.html but the zfs kernel module is not building. From the config.log...

So interestingly enough crt1.o and crtn.o are in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu so adding that to the LIBRARY_PATH (i.e. export LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:$LIBRARY_PATH) and then rerunning the dkms install (which will build first) on the modules (spl and zfs, so dkms install -m spl -v 0.6.5 and dkms install -m zfs -v 0.6.5.2).
All is well now, dkms status shows the modules installed and zpool status now says "no pools available".
That library issue / bug aside (which really really should not be there since it was fixed in Ubuntu back in 2011), I figured I was ask here if anyone has come across this before and if so is there a cleaner fix than what I did?
Also, which ZFS approach is considered the better one to use, ZoL or ZFS on FUSE?
