    Phoronix: F2FS Tools Gain FSCK Support

    The f2fs-tools package that provides user-space utilities to the Linux F2FS file-system is out with a new version that provides FSCK capabilities among other changes...

    Ok, that great. So now I think I can move to f2fs from ext4, but I am still not sure if it is worth.

      Not in Fedora you can't. They're still not building the kernel with support for it nor offering a module in a package. Sort of makes the userland tools somewhat less useful.

        Compiling kernel for my isn't a problem and on my 4790k it doesn't take much time. And arch already have f2fs module.

          So, the OS not designed to have you compile your own stuff doesn't have it--and you have to compile it if you want it. And the OS that you *do* have to compile already comes with it configured to build.

          That's a special kind of irony. Sure, I can build the kernel module for Fedora, but if I wanted to compile kernels anymore, I would be using Arch and *I would already have it*. *sigh*

            I generally agree with you but you definitely don't generally need to compile everything on Arch. You *can* and they do make it easier than most distributions. However, all their repos are binary unless you count AUR which almost always has binary PKGBUILDs for the most popular popular packages.

              Arch Linux is a binary distribution, as Fedora; its users can, but do not have to build anything. As for Fedora, I guess it wasn't enabled for legitimate reasons; after all, F2FS is not yet considered stable, and, up until now, f2fs-tools did not offer checking capabilities. It was probably chosen to close the road to prevent naive users from walking in and being damaged.

                Interesting. I've been using Arch for over 5 years now and I didn't know such a thing as a 'binary PKGBUILD' existed. Unless you mean those services that compile your AUR packages for you ...

                  I'm not asking that Fedora support F2FS for boot/root/user/etc., but they make it vary hard to mount images from Android devices.

                  Since when if Fedora supposed to be a distro for naive users?
