CONFIG_MINIX_FS: Minix file system support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_MINIX_FS has multiple definitions:

Minix file system support found in fs/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_MINIX_FS:

Help text

Minix is a simple operating system used in many classes about OS's. The minix file system (method to organize files on a hard disk partition or a floppy disk) was the original file system for Linux, but has been superseded by the second extended file system ext2fs. You don't want to use the minix file system on your hard disk because of certain built-in restrictions, but it is sometimes found on older Linux floppy disks. This option will enlarge your kernel by about 28 KB. If unsure, say N.

To compile this file system support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called minix. Note that the file system of your root partition (the one containing the directory /) cannot be compiled as a module.
