gokrazy mkfs

This program is intended to be run on gokrazy only, where it will create an ext4 file system on the perm partition and then reboot your system. If /perm is already mounted, the program will exit without changing anything.

The gokrazy mkfs program includes a frozen copy of the mke2fs program from the e2fsprogs package from Debian.


You can either add this program to your gokrazy instance:

gok add

…or, if you want to run it only once without otherwise including it in your installation, you can use gok run:

git clone
cd mkfs
gok -i bakery run
