FS(4) FS(4) Name fs - Native file system boxes. Synopsis /b/fs Description The native file system interfaces foreign file systems to Plan B. It exports files/directories as boxes and uses files/directories to implement newly created boxes. It advertises different boxes with appropriate constraints to the network and permits the creation of persitent boxes by storing them on files. The implementation is suitable for usage on any conventional file system. Permissions and other metadata are mapped to those of the native file system employed. Announces /b/fs/*/bin as /bin. /b/fs/*/lib as /lib. /b/fs/usr as /usr. /b/fs as /. Source /src/b/*/fsbox.c Bugs The implementation can create boxes that do not have inner boxes. It should be able to replace a file with a directory insteadas soon as inner boxes are required. It does not handle link(2) requests nor does it keep the type and constraint for boxes created.
