1 This is the implementation of the SystemV/Coherent filesystem for Linux.
2 It implements all of
3 - Xenix FS,
4 - SystemV/386 FS,
5 - Coherent FS.
7 This is version beta 4.
9 To install:
10 * Answer the 'System V and Coherent filesystem support' question with 'y'
11 when configuring the kernel.
12 * To mount a disk or a partition, use
13 mount [-r] -t sysv device mountpoint
14 The file system type names
15 -t sysv
16 -t xenix
17 -t coherent
18 may be used interchangeably, but the last two will eventually disappear.
20 Bugs in the present implementation:
21 - Coherent FS:
22 - The "free list interleave" n:m is currently ignored.
23 - Only file systems with no filesystem name and no pack name are recognized.
24 (See Coherent "man mkfs" for a description of these features.)
25 - SystemV Release 2 FS:
26 The superblock is only searched in the blocks 9, 15, 18, which
27 corresponds to the beginning of track 1 on floppy disks. No support
28 for this FS on hard disk yet.
