The program for creating reiser4 filesystem.
mkfs.reiser4 [ options ] FILE1 FILE2 ... [ size[K|M|G] ]
mkfs.reiser4 is reiser4 filesystem creation program. It is based on new libreiser4 library. Since libreiser4 is fully plugin-based, we have the potential to create not just reiser4 partitions, but any filesystem or database format, which is based on balanced trees.
prints program version.
-?, -h, --help
prints program help.
assumes an answer 'yes' to all questions.
forces mkfs to use whole disk, not block device or mounted partition.
-b, --block-size N
block size to be used (architecture page size by default)
-L, --label LABEL
volume label to be used
-U, --uuid UUID
universally unique identifier to be used
forces mkfs to create lost+found directory.
tells mkfs to discard given device before creating the filesystem (for solid state drives).
prints the plugin profile. This is the set of default plugins used for all parts of a filesystem -- format, nodes, files, directories, hashes, etc. If --override is specified, then prints modified plugins.
prints all plugins libreiser4 know about.
-o, --override TYPE=PLUGIN, ...
overrides the default plugin of the type "TYPE" by the plugin "PLUGIN" in the plugin profile.
assign short key plugin to "key" field in order to create filesystem with short keys policy:
mkfs.reiser4 -yf -o key=key_short /dev/hda2
