Will zfsutils-linux 2.1.5 be added to 22.04?

Asked by Logan Keating

zfsutils-linux 2.1.4 has a bug which prevents running MySQL in containers in certain instances. See:

Fix has been proposed, and is currently live in zfsutils-linux 2.1.5:

Full disclaimer, I'm a scientist working on a PhD, so I'm not particularly familiar with the development cycle of Ubuntu. I tried to do some digging to figure out if there was an answer already out there about this, but I came up empty-handed. Part of my dissertation project involves setting up a containerized MySQL database (elabFTW) among other things, and if zfsutils-linux isn't going to be upgraded to 2.1.5 soon then I'll need to find another solution.

To be very clear, I don't want it to sound like I'm complaining. I'm very grateful for the work being done. I just want to know if there's a time estimate, or if I'm completely off the mark about updates to LTS releases.

You can try the official way with requesting an update via bug report (see the FAQ linked above).

zfs-linux version 2.1.5 has already been packaged for Ubuntu kinetic.
It may be possible to install it manually on a jammy system.

There maybe PPAs, see https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=zfs-linux for a potential list of candidates.

You can try building the new version locally on your own system, based on the source for Ubuntu kinetic.

Thanks for the info!

I wasn't sure what the process was, or what constitutes a severe enough bug to trigger a package upgrade.

I'll try the PPAs, and if that fails, I *might* attempt building from source.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
