    I went through the howto here; I couldn't get it to work. I'm a newb at this stuff (gray haired in real life). I'd like to try some other approaches but I'd first like to undo the steps in the above howto. I tried deleting the folders but it isn't allowed even as sudo. They must be running.

    What steps would I have to take to remove all the programs installed by the above howto?

    Hi there,

    managed installing ZFS, but there are errors in the Modules.
    I am running Debian Squeeze, but that should not be the problem.

    [email protected]:~# zpool list
    Failed to load ZFS module stack.
    Load the module manually by running 'insmod <location>/zfs.ko' as root.

    [email protected]:~# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/addon/zfs/zfs/zfs.ko
    insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/addon/zfs/zfs/zfs.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module

    ZFS on Debian Squeeze

    insmod likely fails due to dependencies. Use modprobe instead:

    modprobe zfs

    zpool list may then give you error(s) re libraries. You will have to re-run ldconfig:
