Description of problem:


Hi,




for some reason unknown to me, the util-linux package in Rawhide is missing 
mkfs.minix (and possibly fsck.minix). It isn't noted in the changelog, and 
according to Bugzilla, some minix features (i.e. version 2 support) were even 
fixed back in April 2002.




Minix support is still in the sources (2.11z is current, BTW), AFAICT. Can it be 
reactivated, please? Minix-fs is especially nice for boot-floppies, and I seem 
to see that some users use it on hard disks as well.




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):






How reproducible:


Always




Steps to Reproduce:


1. which mkfs.minix


2.


3.


    




Actual Results:  Nothing found.




Expected Results:  /usr/sbin/mkfs.minix

minix fs support is just not on the radar as a priority... Sorry.

For boot floppies, things like cramfs are alternatives.
