What was weird is that debootstrap kept trying for a -9, while I could see and download the -10... something must have been cached somewhere I didn't find. > I'm sorry, but sometimes things are out of my control.

But assumption is the mother of all f*ck-ups :-) Turns out I had forgotten to propagate the network config from the ext4 install this time, and yes I needed the console parameter :-) I have mutiuser on the ZFS Root install now :-) Cordially & thanks for your help, -- Romain Dolbeau
