ZFS seemed like the better (and easier) solution for me at the time.
ZFS seems more simple to me, too. However, RAIDframe is stable and usable,
I had hoped. My main problem currently is with my keyboard.
For years I had an IBM Model-M, which I loved and never wanted to give
up. An new computer forced me to give it up though because the new MoBo
doesn't have a PS/2 port. :-/
Use a USB to PS/2 converter dongle. They are cheap and available all over
the place. They also usually function as PS/2 repeater, so you can plug
and unplug the thing at will or use it on a PS/2 KVM.
I'm a keyboard nut and I have multiple IBM models, including the M.
A message I get while booting up is: ukbd1: attrach failed, too many
Whoa. That's a new one on me. Usually you can use usbhidctl and
usbhidaction to program those keys (though I've had problems with
usbhidaction lately). Still, at worst, the keyboards mostly still work.
If it were me I'd hunt down that message in the kernel code and try to
find out what the error condition was when it's thrown. Also, what
prevents you from running it in BIOS mode? I find UEFI annoying even if it
is "the future". Does it give you some advantage?
