[Filesystems-devel] Bug#803744: f2fs-tools: use of f2fs as rootfs is broken

Source: f2fs-tools
Severity: normal


at least when using System-V Init Debian is currently not able to run from
a f2fs root. The reason is, that fsck.f2fs is unable to check a ro mounted fs.

As this is also the case with xfs there is an easy solution:

1. Rename fsck.f2fs to something else like f2fs_repair or f2fs_check.

2. Copy fsck.xfs script to fsck.f2fs or replace with a slightly modified Version
  (e.g. printing F2FS instead of xfs).
