Will Endeavour OS ever move to BTRFS?

Tried it once … file system totally :poop: itself … once bitten.

I am using the Btrfs setup on the wiki by @2000 and it is working great.


I think it may be that people try Btrfs and maybe it’s not set up properly because it is difficult to wrap your head around it. Then when stuff goes haywire they blame the file system. The fact is it’s been around a long time and being used by well known high end Linux distros. I also like xfs file system because it’s fast.


Or maybe it just isn’t trustworthy

Maybe that’s just a perception you have because you had a bad experience?

Or maybe you’re just wrong

I run two 1tib ssds in btrfs raid 0 as my home partition :crazy_face: and have been for almost a year hasn’t broken yet. Guess I am just lucky :four_leaf_clover:

Well I’m using it and I like the way i have it set up. So far it’s been great! All I’m saying is don’t let a bad experience taint your judgement. You haven’t tried this set up and i do believe that the @2000 is somewhat of an expert on this Btrfs setup.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fooling me a third time will never happen.


I mean BTrFS can’t be that bad if the Arch team uses it for most of their infrastructure.


curius how many subvolumes do you have? :slight_smile:

What ever the set up is that @2000 created. I’m running it on all my systems. I have triple boot with one being Luks encryption and the other two are not plus using rEFInd. Then I have another dual boot with Windows 10 and Luks encryption. Then I have another single boot no encryption on MBR.


Garuda uses it in the Calamares. Maybe theirs can be borrowed/influenced by until Calamares adds support.
