extension(s) support Exfat filesystem
« on: June 05, 2021, 06:02:32 PM »
I using TC12 pure64.

Linux kernel 5.4 and up is support Exfat. So to mount, read and write Exfat filesystem. Do I need install:
1) filesystems-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz
2) or exfat-utils.tcz and fuse-exfat.tcz

It seems that 1st or 2nd choice are all fully supported Exfat? Is there any difference between them?

As per: http://tinycorelinux.net/12.x/x86_64/tcz/filesystems-5.10.3-tinycore64.tcz.list, the filesystems extension contains exfat.ko.gz, so you will need that.

Once the filesystems-KERNEL extension is loaded, you can try "mount -t exfat..." to see if that works - if not, then you'll need the fuse-exfat extension (exfat-utils supplies additional tools).

yes, I tested, filesystems-5.10.3 is fully support exfat. We don't need exfat-utils and fuse-exfat

I’d guess you’ll need exfat-utils if you want to create an exfat partition..
