He didn't say he wanted to cat to a file. But it doesn't matter. It was only clear from context, responding to the advice of "zfs receive"ing into a zpool-in-a-file, that it was clear he was asking about doing a "zfs receive" into a file, not just cat. If you weren't paying close attention to the thread, it would be easy to misunderstand what he was asking for. When he asked for "minimal user-mode" he meant, something less than a full-blown OS installation just for the purpose of zfs receive. He went on to say, he was considering zfs-fuse-on-linux. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
