Adding support for other filesystems
« on: February 03, 2017, 02:00:38 PM »
I was wondering what would be needed to add support for other filesystems to TC.  I would like to be able to keep the tce and persistent home directories on a BTRFS subvolume. There doesn't seem to be anything in the wiki about this.

On a slightly different note, are there any plans to update the wiki? Many of the pages seem to have been written for TC 4.x or less

Hi juanjguevara
Have you tried installing the  filesystems  extension?

I won't be able to test it until tomorrow, but It sounds simple enough.

My biggest questions is whether the kernel module will load early enough in the boot process to be able to detect the tce folder in the btrfs partition

No, you must remaster initrd and add btrfs kernel module.

Is recompiling the kernel necessary for that?

No, just extract the kernel module from the filesystems-KERNEK.tcz extension and repack initrd. Read article on remastering in the WiKi,

The wiki is user contributed. You can help update it, use your forum login details.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Remastering worked great!
tce directory on BTRFS was seen without issues

I've only been using tc for a couple of weeks. When I've had a bit more experience I'll try updating some of the wiki pages.
Maybe adding some sort of "wiki help wanted" post in the forums or the wiki itself would cause some more volunteers to crawl out of
the woodwork?

btrfs support is in the filesystems-KERNEL extension
