ian@0 1 This is the implementation of the SystemV/Coherent filesystem for Linux.
ian@0 2 It implements all of
ian@0 3 - Xenix FS,
ian@0 4 - SystemV/386 FS,
ian@0 5 - Coherent FS.
ian@0 6
ian@0 7 This is version beta 4.
ian@0 8
ian@0 9 To install:
ian@0 10 * Answer the 'System V and Coherent filesystem support' question with 'y'
ian@0 11 when configuring the kernel.
ian@0 12 * To mount a disk or a partition, use
ian@0 13 mount [-r] -t sysv device mountpoint
ian@0 14 The file system type names
ian@0 15 -t sysv
ian@0 16 -t xenix
ian@0 17 -t coherent
ian@0 18 may be used interchangeably, but the last two will eventually disappear.

ian@0 20 Bugs in the present implementation:
ian@0 21 - Coherent FS:
ian@0 22 - The "free list interleave" n:m is currently ignored.
ian@0 23 - Only file systems with no filesystem name and no pack name are recognized.
ian@0 24 (See Coherent "man mkfs" for a description of these features.)
ian@0 25 - SystemV Release 2 FS:
ian@0 26 The superblock is only searched in the blocks 9, 15, 18, which
ian@0 27 corresponds to the beginning of track 1 on floppy disks. No support
ian@0 28 for this FS on hard disk yet.
