btrfs in openSUSE

Feature state



I think it is time to make btrfs as a part of upcoming openSUSE 11.2, probably with BIG warning but still there should be possibility to use btrfs and even better with some kind of integration in YaST disk module... Fedora is going for btrfs with next release either.

It will automatically be available by means of the new kernel. Now just to add the string in the list of offered filesystems in yast2, plus said dialog and installation of btrfsprogs, and you are (hopefully) done.

Ok, thanks maybe I will create a patch on my own :D I wanted to look inside YaST someday anyway :-)

While it is in the Kernel, the system does not have the tools to mount it at boot yet.

Nonsense. In fact, I have a 11.1 install image in a virtual machine that has btrfs as a rootfs, and as a matter of fact, btrfsprogs is not even installed. And yet it works.

btrfs is in the kernel already, but highly experimental and as such having it in yast as install option is no option at its current state. If someone wants to work on a patch to support bootloader, etc - go ahead, but as such the feature is pointless I'd think.

Note: I have added minimal experimental btrfs support to YaST as Feature #306587.
But btrfs for root is broken, see Bug #543801. Btrfs for boot surely does not work.

This looks done to me, in 11.2 the YaST partitioner did indeed permit btrfs as an option with a big "unsupported" experimental feature warning.  The "rejected for 11.2" status seems incorrect!

would like to see this in 11.3.

As btrfs is in 11.2 already this feature might be marked as done for 11.3 as well but I'd like to ask about the status of btrfs in 11.2 and needed improvements for 11.3.

we won't invest into improving btrfs I would think (this should really happen on kernel.org) and the yast integration work was already done for 11.2
