I think it is time to make btrfs as a part of upcoming openSUSE 11.2,
probably with BIG warning but still there should be possibility to use
btrfs and even better with some kind of integration in YaST disk
module... Fedora is going for btrfs with next release either.

It will automatically be available by means of the new kernel. Now just
to add the string in the list of offered filesystems in yast2, plus
said dialog and installation of btrfsprogs, and you are (hopefully)

#2: Marek Stopka (m4r3k) (2009-03-20 06:38:07) (reply to #1)
Ok, thanks maybe I will create a patch on my own :D I wanted to look
inside YaST someday anyway :-)

While it is in the Kernel, the system does not have the tools to mount
it at boot yet.

#5: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2009-11-07 01:49:11) (reply to #4)
Nonsense. In fact, I have a 11.1 install image in a virtual machine
that has btrfs as a rootfs, and as a matter of fact, btrfsprogs is not
even installed. And yet it works.

#3: Stephan Kulow (coolo) (2009-03-30 20:38:20)
btrfs is in the kernel already, but highly experimental and as such
having it in yast as install option is no option at its current state.
If someone wants to work on a patch to support bootloader, etc - go
ahead, but as such the feature is pointless I'd think.

#6: Arvin Schnell (aschnell) (2009-11-07 09:44:50)
Note: I have added minimal experimental btrfs support to YaST as
feature #306587. But btrfs for root is broken, see bnc #543801. Btrfs
for boot surely does not work.

#7: Robert Davies (robopensuse) (2009-11-30 20:05:15)
This looks done to me, in 11.2 the YaST partitioner did indeed permit
btrfs as an option with a big "unsupported" experimental feature
warning.  The "rejected for 11.2" status seems incorrect!
