How to enable the btrfs Anaconda option on Fedora 13

Aug 02, 2010, 17:37 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Fini Decima for this link. ]

"Fedora 13 is one of a handful of Linux distributions with support for btrfs, the B-tree File System, one of the newest file systems in the Linux kernel. Btrfs is destined to be the default Linux file system. Expect to see it as the default on Fedora by the time Fedora 17 comes along. For now, however, it is still an experimental file system, If you installed Fedora using any of the live installation media, btrfs will not be available as an option in the File System Type menu. To play with btrfs on Fedora, you will have to use the boot.fedoraproject.org (bfo) installation media or the DVD installation media, which is not a live media.

"This tutorial will show how to enable the btrfs option using both methods of installation. Let's begin the bfo method."
