#9545 F33 system-wide change: btrfs by default
Closed: Fixed 3 years ago by mohanboddu. Opened 3 years ago by chrismurphy.

  • Describe the issue


Change the default file system for all desktops (Workstation edition, KDE and all other desktop spins) to use Btrfs.


  • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)


  • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)

(Deliver Incomplete Changes to FESCo)

  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?

Conan-Kudo might not buy you a beer.


Uncertain about this: The live ISOs use a squashfs image which contains a nested ext4 image. The change proposal does not intend to cause this nested ext4 to become btrfs. Is this a non-factor due to kickstarts not being modified by this proposal?

We should be okay, we're not changing anything about the kickstarts, only how Anaconda installs onto the user's system.

Ah, I forgot about the disk image variants of the desktop variants we make for ARM. Those would need fixing.

AFAICT, there are no releng work needed other than reviewing fedora-kickstarts, please correct me if I am wrong and reopen the ticket.
