ZFS on Linux
 
I am using an Arch-based distro, Artix, and I've have two installs of it, one is on BTRFS and other is on ZFS.





BTRFS one acts normal. The ZFS install, after I launch X I can not open any X11 app at all, not even a terminal. st(terminal) it shows a real fast open and close. I've ran X as root to test the idea maybe a permission issue but it results in the same issue.

Have you read the wiki?

Don't do that. startx as user.

I know not to run it as root, it was a test.

The wiki does not contain anything that I seen that helps. I've done ZFS installs, but never had a X11 app issue with zfs

Found out it was expecting shell to be zsh and at the time I didn't have zsh installed, so it caused this issue

I would consider an unresolved dependancy as a bug - especially on Arch. Open a bug report against zfs.

ZSH isn't a dependency :) I had it set in a config file and forgot about it until I relooked at the config file.
