....it seems that this is very old and it's not the real zfs
implementation. Instead some crucial packages are missing :

root@devuan-bunsen:/lib/modules# apt-get install
--no-install-recommends zfs-dkms libzfslinux-dev

Can't find zfs-dkms
Can't find libzfslinux-dev

This is my sources.list :

deb http://deb.devuan.nz/merged daedalus main
deb http://deb.devuan.nz/merged daedalus-updates main
deb http://deb.devuan.nz/merged daedalus-security main
deb http://deb.devuan.nz/merged daedalus-backports main

I'm running Devuan 5 on my ARM v7 Chromebook SNOW. I need to install
zfs,but I don't see the package zfs-utils between the packages. The only
package related to zfs that I see is called "zfs-fuse" ;

What I need to do is to import the zpool that I have installed on the disk
sda :

Disk /dev/sda: 298.09 GiB, 320072933376 bytes, 625142448 sectors
Disk model: 3200BMV External
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt
Disk identifier: C1325982-C3AC-11EE-B26E-74D43583CD3F

Device       Start       End   Sectors   Size Type
/dev/sda1       40      1063      1024   512K FreeBSD boot
/dev/sda2     2048   4196351   4194304     2G FreeBSD swap
/dev/sda3  4196352 625141759 620945408 296.1G FreeBSD ZFS

It is called zroot-swap and it has been created by FreeBSD. I tried to
import it by starting the zfs-fuse service :

root@devuan-bunsen:/mnt/zroot-swap# service zfs-fuse start

but unfortunately it does not work :

root@devuan-bunsen:/mnt/zroot-swap# zpool import -f -R /mnt/zroot-swap
cannot import 'zroot-swap': pool is formatted using a newer ZFS version

it seems that this is very old and it's not the real zfs implementation.
