NAME

       mkfs.reiser4 - the program for creating reiser4 filesystem.

SYNOPSIS

       mkfs.reiser4 [ options ] FILE1 FILE2 ... [ size[K|M|G] ]

DESCRIPTION

       mkfs.reiser4 is reiser4 filesystem creation program. It is based on new
       libreiser4 library. Since libreiser4 is fully plugin-based, we have the
       potential  to create not just reiser4 partitions, but any filesystem or
       database format, which is based on balanced trees.

COMMON OPTIONS

       -V, --version
              prints program version.

       -?, -h, --help
              prints program help.

       -y, --yes
              assumes an answer 'yes' to all questions.

       -f, --force
              forces mkfs to use whole  disk,  not  block  device  or  mounted
              partition.

MKFS OPTIONS

       -b, --block-size N
              block size to be used (architecture page size by default)

       -L, --label LABEL
              volume label to be used

       -U, --uuid UUID
              universally unique identifier to be used

       -s, --lost-found
              forces mkfs to create lost+found directory.

       -d, --discard
              tells   mkfs   to  discard  given  device  before  creating  the
              filesystem (for solid state drives).

PLUGIN OPTIONS

       -p, --print-profile
              prints the plugin profile. This is the set  of  default  plugins
              used  for  all  parts  of  a filesystem -- format, nodes, files,
              directories, hashes,  etc.  If  --override  is  specified,  then
              prints modified plugins.

       -l, --print-plugins
              prints all plugins libreiser4 know about.

       -o, --override TYPE=PLUGIN, ...
              overrides  the  default  plugin of the type "TYPE" by the plugin
              "PLUGIN" in the plugin profile.

              Examples:

              assign short key plugin  to  "key"  field  in  order  to  create
              filesystem with short keys policy:

              mkfs.reiser4 -yf -o key=key_short /dev/hda2
