Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 972446
F2FS kernel module not built
Last modified: 2015-01-12 19:05:32 EST
Description of problem:
fs2fs tools are available, but the f2fs driver is not available in the kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. user mkfs.fsf2 (f2fs-tools) to buld a fsf2 filesystem
2. try to mount it
3. Notice the lack of kernel support
Lacke of kernel support
We don't plan on enabling this in the generic kernel.
F2FS seems to have an outstanding performance in certain common workloads:
I would also ask to enable the respective kernel module.
Perhaps it could go into kernel-modules-extra now that we have that?
Okay, you bunch of redhat morons really deserve negative PR as seen on http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTg3MDQ
Its just amazing how some distro and company can be hostile to their users and especially enthusiasts willing to try new technologies here and there. Your bug handling is fucked. And even Ubuntu more sane these days - they supply F2FS by default.
lnx.usr - Your tone and language are completely inappropriate.

If it is not possible include it in kernel-modules, then yes please.
I plan on opening a new ticket after feedback from the Devel mailing list. I don't believe requiring uses to install kernel-modules-extra is the way to go on this. If it's good enough for Ubuntu (which is a distribution aimed at new linux users) it is certainly good enough for Fedora.
