Thread: should I select Btrfs or something else?

  1. #1

    Default should I select Btrfs or something else?

    I am about to install my Tumbleweed 13.2 and I was reading about hardrives (ssd) filling up with snapshots while using Btrfs is this something that I should be concerned about? also I would like to know if there are any problems with amd graphic cards while using Tumbleweed?

    please advise.

    Thank you

    You can disable snapshots completely when installing, it's simple checkmark yes/no.

    The post should be in the Thumbleweed sub-forum.. Sins the release of 13.2 there has been no checkmarks other then accept Btrfs at / and snapshots or chose another filesystem for /. Not for common users.

    If installing Tumbleweed then you should post for help in Tumbleweed forum (where you posted earlier today about this) even if starting a new thread or topic in the "Help" section of the forum.

    I realise you are new to posting on openSUSE Forum, so you also need to be aware that "double posting" on the same subject causes problems and is therefore not usually allowed.

    BTW, Tumbleweed (rolling release) and 13.2 (the last stable release) are totally separate published releases of openSUSE, sourced from different package repositories.
    Leap 42.3 (ext4, KDE Plasma 5.8.7) ~ stable
    Manjaro (ext4, Xfce) ~ rolling updates
    Tumbleweed (ext4, KDE Plasma5) ~ managed updates via "Tumbleweed Snapshots" service.

    I beg to differ, it's right smack in the first partitioning screen under "Edit Proposal" - hardly beyond "common" users.

    Sorry I am new to this forum. So it is possible to disable the snapshots that way it doesn't eat the space in the drive. Another concern is the amd graphics with the tumbleweed I might not be able to use them, this is what it says in the opensuse website. Rolling release is nice but I think i will stick to stable. Btw this is a much better community than Ubuntu you guys are on point.
    Thanks

    Hi
    Yes, you can disable, Miuku's post indicates how. You do loose the
    advantage of rolling back and it's just a matter to wind down the
    config defaults in /etc/snapper/configs/root.

    Not sure about the AMD fglrx driver, works fine in 13.2, I use the rpm
    method from https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD_fglrx
