NAME

mklogfs - create a LogFS filesystem.

 

SYNOPSIS

mklogfs [OPTIONS] DEVICE

 

DESCRIPTION

LogFS is a scalable flash filesystem. It is aimed to replace JFFS2 for most uses, but focuses more on large devices. JFFS2 works well enough on small devices, it just gets slow and uses up too much memory on larger ones.

 

OPTIONS

-c, --compress
turn compression on.
-h, --help
display help.
-s, --segshift
segment shift in bits.
-w, --writeshift
write shift in bits.
--demo-mode
skip bad block scan; don't erase device.
--non-interactive
turn off safety question before writing.

Segment size and write size are powers of two. To specify them, the appropriate power is specified with the "-s" or "-w" options, instead of the actual size. E.g. "mklogfs -w8" will set a writesize of 256 Bytes (2^8).
