Talk:File systems

I'm dual-booting with FreeBSD and was trying to figure out if UFS was supported on Arch. I was able to mount the filesystem based on a forum post[1], but it seems like this information belongs on this page. I'm hesitant to edit the wiki personally because I've never edited a wiki before and I'm not sure what the proper etiquette is. Thoughts? Saffronsnail (talk) 18:04, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Since UFS is back in the current kernel, mounting UFS should work out of the box (On my system at least, the ufs module is autoloaded when calling mount with -t ufs.), unless people haven't updated their system. So additional info should no longer be needed. Lcts (talk) 12:53, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Section name simplification

I think we can strip file systems/file system from the headings to keep it DRY. The ToC would then look like:

1 Types
    1.1 Journaling
    1.2 FUSE-based
    1.3 Stackable
    1.4 Read-only
    1.5 Clustered
2 Identify existing
3 Create
4 Mount
    4.1 List mounted
    4.2 Unmount
5 See also

Also note that I'd like to change Umount to Unmount.

Seeing that 129 pages link here, do we have a tool to rename sections & automatically fix backlinks if we decide to do this?

That looks very awkward and brusque, brevity is not a synonym for omitting words. I don't think that "Identify existing" or "Create" are good section names. Also note that File systems#Journaling does not list journaling file systems, but describes the concept, so your proposed naming gets ambiguous. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 15:32, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Alright then nevermind that. I think that Umount a file system should be renamed to Unmount a file system because umount isn't a word, do you agree with that? Do we have a tool for updating backlinks when renaming sections? --Larivact (talk) 15:37, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
OK, the script should catch this one. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 09:37, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
