Btrfs?

Post by sythe » Mon Aug 09, 2010 6:27 pm

When I install Linux Mint 9 on a brand-new, OS-free laptop, how can I use Btrfs?
What extra configuration steps required?

I don't think that Mint 9 supports Btrfs at install. You would have to convert the partitions to Btrfs afterwards. Here is a tutorial on how to do it in Ubuntu it should work but no promises. (Mint 9 = Ubuntu 10.04)
