    Command:

    mkfs.minix

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           mkfs.minix [-c|-l filename] [-n namelength] [-i inodecount] [-v] device
           [size-in-blocks]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           mkfs.minix creates a Linux MINIX filesystem on a device (usually a disk
           partition).
    
           The device is usually of the following form:
    
                  /dev/hda[1-8] (IDE disk 1)
                  /dev/hdb[1-8] (IDE disk 2)
                  /dev/sda[1-8] (SCSI disk 1)
                  /dev/sdb[1-8] (SCSI disk 2)
    
           The size-in-blocks parameter is the desired size of the file system, in
           blocks.  It is present only for backwards  compatibility.   If  omitted
           the  size will be determined automatically.  Only block counts strictly
           greater than 10 and strictly less than 65536 are allowed.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -c     Check the device for bad blocks before creating the  filesystem.
                  If any are found, the count is printed.
    
           -n namelength
                  Specify  the  maximum  length of filenames.  Currently, the only
                  allowable values are 14 and 30.  The default is 30.   Note  that
                  kernels older than 0.99p7 only accept namelength 14.
    
           -i inodecount
                  Specify the number of inodes for the filesystem.
    
           -l filename
                  Read  the  list  of  bad blocks from filename.  The file has one
                  bad-block number per line.  The count  of  bad  blocks  read  is
                  printed.
    
           -1     Make a Minix version 1 filesystem.
    
           -2, -v Make a Minix version 2 filesystem.
    
           -3     Make a Minix version 3 filesystem.
    
    
    

    EXIT CODES

           The exit code returned by mkfs.minix is one of the following:
    
           0      No errors
    
           8      Operational error
    
           16     Usage or syntax error
