F2FS Install?
« on: 2019/10/29, 14:29:35 »
Hi there,
considering that last official release dates back to 18.3 and that F2FS has become quite more reliable since then (some distros like solydXK are already implementing it), wouldn't it be great to be able to do F2FS installs, for all those who own SSD starting with next release?
After all, that's the way a cutting edge sid spirit ought to be....

CONFIG_F2FS_FS=m
CONFIG_F2FS_STAT_FS=y

I mean incliding F2FS as a root filesystem choice for install.

We will not have out of the box f2fs installations in a foreseable future - easy as that, kpmcore and calamares must support it.

Edit: Just tested it - install went fine but it don't boot a legacy system, maybe i do something wrong - one could install f2fs-tools and go through the manual partition process - good luck.

Excuse me, am not getting it: did you succeed in installing with calamares by manually formatting with F2FS or did you use some other procedure (e.g. copying a whole filesystem and restoring it on F2FS with a tool like fsarchiver)?

if one install f2fs-tools before starting calamares one should be able to use the format - i wouldn't suggest it right now, but the next kernel will supporf2fs kernelwise - and i would wait until the currently released f2fs-tools are in debian

This sounds reasonable. So the right moment might overlap with siduction's next release.Btw, is there some idea about when it's going to be due? 2019 still didn't sport any.

OK, nobody hastening, we know how this works.
Just a rough estimate like 1st half 2020 or 2nd half 2020.
