You can easily build a package from an Ubuntu PPA, using the following procedure. The Zfs on Linux PPA is used as an example: https://launchpad.net/~zfs-native/+archive/stable

  • Install the Debian SDK:

apt-get install devscripts build-essential
  • Add the PPA to your sources.list

#NB: the deb-src line and GPG key are to be found on the "Technical Details"
#page of the PPA
echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/zfs-native/stable/ubuntu precise main" >> /etc/apt_sources.list
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys F6B0FC61
apt-get update
  • Install build tools and required deps:

apt-get build-dep linux-headers-amd64 zfs-linux spl-linux
  • Build the zfs-linux packages

apt-get source -b zfs-dkms 

build the spl-linux packages

apt-get source -b spl-linux
  • Install the resulting stuff

dpkg -i "zfsutils_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_amd64.deb zfs-dkms_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_amd64.deb libzpool1_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_amd64.deb libzfs1_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_amd64.deb libuutil1_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_amd64.deb libnvpair1_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_amd64.deb spl-dkms_0.6.0.86-0ubuntu1~precise1_all.deb"

Activate zfs on startup and reboot:

#in /etc/default/zfs
ZFS_MOUNT='yes'
ZFS_UNMOUNT='yes'
