Only DKMS style packages can be provided for Fedora from the official repository. This is because Fedora is a fast moving distribution which does not provide a stable kABI. These packages track the official ZFS on Linux tags and are updated as new versions are released. Packages are available for the following configurations:

Fedora Releases: 26, 27, 28
Architectures: x86_64

To simplify installation a zfs-release package is provided which includes a zfs.repo configuration file and the ZFS on Linux public signing key. All official ZFS on Linux packages are signed using this key, and by default both yum and dnf will verify a package's signature before allowing it be to installed. Users are strongly encouraged to verify the authenticity of the ZFS on Linux public key using the fingerprint listed here.

The ZFS on Linux packages should be installed with dnf on Fedora. Note that it is important to make sure that the matching kernel-devel package is installed for the running kernel since DKMS requires it to build ZFS.

$ sudo dnf install kernel-devel zfs

Systemd Update:

When upgrading to the zfs-0.7.4 release it's recommended that users manually reset the zfs systemd presets. Failure to do so can result in the pool not automatically importing when the system is rebooted.

systemctl preset zfs-import-cache zfs-import-scan zfs-mount zfs-share zfs-zed

Repository Renamed:

The repository has been renamed from An updated zfs-release package was added to the legacy repository to move users to the new repository. Users which modifed the /etc/yum.repos.d/zfs.repo must manually replace this file with the updated /etc/yum.repos.d/zfs.repo.rpmsave.

Testing Repositories

In addition to the primary zfs repository a zfs-testing repository is available. This repository, which is disabled by default, contains the latest version of ZFS on Linux which is under active development. These packages are made available in order to get feedback from users regarding the functionality and stability of upcoming releases. These packages should not be used on production systems. Packages from the testing repository can be installed as follows.

$ sudo dnf --enablerepo=zfs-testing install kernel-devel zfs
