Using Yast Partition Manager, the file systems I have available is BtrFS, Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, FAT and XFS
Why ain’t F2FS available? Would think F2FS is mature for flash based storage at least with the current stable kernel.
Have installed f2fs-tools
Anyway. Perhaps I could format my flash storage manually with F2FS.
A brief read of various search engine hits suggests
Experimental support was introduced in kernel 3.10.x, so F2FS can be used as a native fs(assuming support wasn’t subsequently removed)
Is probably more useful for different types of flash than what you’d normally find in an SSD (ie. thumb drives, sdcards, etc)
Known optimizations for other more used fs (esp ext4, btrfs, etc) probably deliver everything you’d need so it’s questionable whether a less tested fs like F2FS can deliver reward for the risk.
That said, I’d suppose although it’s not an openSUSE install option you probably could deploy without a problem on a fairly standard openSUSE 13.1 (and later). You just need to format and partition the flash beforehand on another machine, then install pointing to the device.
