Description Moritz Barsnick 2003-02-20 04:13:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:

User-Agent: Mozilla/3.0 (Windows NT 5.1; U) Opera 7.01  [en]

Description of problem:


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:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. which mkfs.minix




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.
