Is there any support for the FreeBSD Fast filesystem on Linux (either 2.4 or 2.6 kernel) ?
Any information/resources would be very helpul.
Which filesystem EXACTLY do you mean?
There's original FFS, UFS, and UFS2.
You can get the later two with journalling.
Often, people use one term for everything.
Include ufs support in your kernel, then mount
the filesystem with one of the options below.
As you rightly pointed out, I have observed that "UFS" is used as a generic term for all BSD based filesystems. But, I specifically want to know about support regarding FreeBSD FFS.
Is this the same as ufstype=44BSD ? I could not find any information about this. Any help/pointers/docs will be greatly appreciated.
