    Making a minix filesystem


    Hey!
    I'm having some problems making a minix fs on my floppy disk.
    I added support for minix in the kernel (as a module).

    Loaded it with

    # modprobe minix

    After that i formatted the floppy

    # fdformat /dev/floppy/0

    # mkfs -t minix /dev/floppy/0

    mkfs.minix: No such file or directory

    What am I doing wrong?

    what does "locate mkfs.minix" tell you?

    mkfs is just a frontend program for other programs that build filesystems. . .

    read "man mkfs" or "man mkfs.minix" for information. . .
