F2FS (Flash-Friendly File System) 是一个为基于 NAND 闪存设备设计的文件系统。 它可在 Linux 内核 3.8.x 以及更高版本使用。当在 eMMC, SSD, NVMe, SDCard, 或者基于闪存的 USB 设备安装 Gentoo时,此文件系统是一个好的选择。

F2FS is very useful for "dumb" flash storage (like a usb thumbdrive). Modern SSDs might be better off with ext4 or xfs. See the debate here.

When enabling support to the filesystem in the Linux kernel, it is wise to enable at least "F2FS extended attributes" (F2FS_FS_XATTR) with "F2FS Access Control Lists" (CONFIG_F2FS_FS_POSIX_ACL) and "F2FS Security Labels" (CONFIG_F2FS_FS_SECURITY) suboptions.

"F2FS consistency checking feature" (CONFIG_F2FS_CHECK_FS) option in the list will enable F2FS's filesystem consistency checking. The checking will occur during run time and will decrease the filesystem's performance. This option provides an advantage when consistency is more important than speed.


Install the userspace tools for the F2FS filesystem:

root #emerge --ask sys-fs/f2fs-tools



After emerging the userspace tools, create a filesystem by running the mkfs.f2fs command followed by the appropriate device and partition number:

root #mkfs.f2fs /dev/sdd1


root #fsck.f2fs /dev/sdd1


root #defrag.f2fs
