The zfs and zpool commands are nonfunctional in the fixit shell of the
7.0-BETA4-i386-livefs.iso cd image. When either command is run, the
result is "internal error: failed to initialize ZFS library".
How-To-Repeat: 1. Boot from 7.0-BETA4-i386-livefs.iso.
2. Select country.
3. Select Fixit.
4. Select CDROM/DVD.
5. Try to run "zfs" or "zpool".
Hello Pawel, you probably know best what to do with this (or how to get
this properly supported) so forwarding the ticket to you ;-)
With pjd's permission, reassing ZFS-related PRs to freebsd-fs.
I am also having this very same problem on my 7.2-RELEASE/amd64, kinda
hard to debug ZFS issues when you cannot interact with ZFS from

This should be moved to -docs, here is why:
I managed to figure it out after having some of my hair go gray: when
you are in FIXIT, you have to do "kldload
/dist/boot/kernel/opensolaris.ko; kldload /dist/boot/kernel/zfs.ko" in
that particular order (because automatic loading of kernel module
dependencies does not work in FIXIT). After this, "zpool" and "zfs"
will start working. The ZFS part of the Handbook (
makes no mention about this, I think a small note in there is in
Automatic dependencies load should work from fixit. I think the problem
is that kern.module_path isn't configured properly. Are you able to
verify that? If that's the case can you manually set kern.module_path to
/dist/boot/kernel and see if that will make it to work?
I'm back, so take it back.
