F2FS Install Guide
These docs assume you have a "PC compatible" computer system with a standard PC BIOS. Many new computers support UEFI for booting, which is a new firmware interface that frequently replaces the older MBR-based BIOS. If you have a system with UEFI, you will want to use this documentation along with the UEFI Install Guide, which will augment these instructions and explain how to get your system to boot. You may need to change your PC BIOS settings to enable or disable UEFI booting. The UEFI Install Guide has more information on this, and steps on how to determine if your system supports UEFI.
Installing on F2FS isn't terribly different from installing on XFS or EXT4;; but there are enough factors that warrant a guide of its own
Funtoo doesn't provide an "official" Funtoo Live CD, but there are plenty of good ones out there to choose from. A great choice is the Debian-based GRML as it contains lots of tools and utilities and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
It is also possible to install Funtoo Linux using many other Linux-based live CDs. Generally, any modern bootable Linux live CD or live USB media will work. See requirements for an overview of what the Live Media must provide to allow a problem-free install of Funtoo Linux.
To begin a Funtoo Linux installation, boot your preferred live media & start a commandline session.
Starting an SSH session
This is only required if you wish to perform the installation process on a computer other than where you are installing funtoo to
service ssh start; passwd; ifconfig
This starts SSH, asks for a root password, and then displays the IP address
Install required programs
apt-get update; apt-get install f2fs-tools elinks
F2FS is not included in current linux kernels, and elinks is used to download the stage3 tarball
Your partition layout should be similar to
|Partition||Size||MBR Block Device (
|swap||1.5 to 2x RAM for low-memory systems and production servers; otherwise 2GB.||
||minimum of 10GB. Note: to compile the
||User storage and media. Typically most of the disk.||
mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda1 mkswap /dev/sda2 swapon /dev/sda2 mkfs.f2fs /dev/sda3 mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda4
Mounting the new system
mkdir /mnt/funtoo mount -t f2fs /dev/sda3 /mnt/funtoo mkdir /mnt/funtoo/boot mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/funtoo/boot mkdir /mnt/funtoo/home mount -o noatime /dev/sda4 /mnt/funtoo/home
Downloading the system
cd /mnt/funtoo/ elinks build.funtoo.org <console/> Navigate to your arch, your subarch and save stage3 ==Installing stage3== <console> tar xpfv stage3-latest.tar.xz cp /etc/resolv.conf etc
===chrooting into the new system mount -t proc none proc
mount --rbind /sys sys
mount --rbind /dev dev
env -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM; chroot . bash -l
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2
/dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sda3 / f2fs rw,acl,active_logs=6,background_gc=on,user_xattr 0 1
/dev/sda4 /home ext4 noatime 0 1
#/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,ro 0 0
CFLAGS="-mtune=generic -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="-mtune=generic -O2 -pipe"
emerge -auDN @world
emerge -av sys-kernel/gentoo-sources sys-kernel/genkernel f2fs-tools
cd /usr/src/linux; make menuconfig
- Save config as 'f2fs.config'
echo 'f2fs' >> /etc/conf.d/modules
genkernel --kernel-config=f2fs.config all
- The next three steps are the same as listed here
emerge grub boot-update
grub-install --no-floppy /dev/sda
rc-update add dhcpcd default
