Use XFS on Odroid C2. Update to Kernel v4?

Postby pabgan » Fri Jul 07, 2017 10:10 pm

Hi there.

First of all, thank you very much for your work. I really love it.

I recently purchased an Odroid C2 to serve as a home server (nfs, emby, nextcloud, etc.), substituting a RaspberryPI 2. I intended to use it with an attached HDD formatted with XFS. I have sadly discovered that it just does not work with XFS.
dmesg shows:
Code: Select all
[354456.918254] XFS (dm-16): Version 5 superblock detected. This kernel has EXPERIMENTAL support enabled!
Use of these features in this kernel is at your own risk!
[354456.918391] XFS (dm-16): Superblock has unknown read-only compatible features (0x1) enabled.
[354456.918461] XFS (dm-16): Attempted to mount read-only compatible filesystem read-write.
Filesystem can only be safely mounted read only.
[354456.918477] XFS (dm-16): SB validate failed with error 22.


I have read:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=398&p=1718&hilit=xfs+mount#p1718
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1314
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2037&p=7933&hilit=kernel#p7933

XFS module is loaded in my system, so I guess that Kernel 3.14 is just too old.

Questions:
  • Can I expect Kernel 4 any time soon with just an aptitude upgrade?
  • If not, how could I install it on my own? I read that is for testing only, but is it feasible? I don't do any critical stuff.
  • Is there any workaround to mount that XFS system with kernel 3 or will it implode?

Thank you very much for your answer, Fourdee.

I am having a hard time deciding this matter, but I think I will go with just reformatting my HDD.

Hi,

Apologies, I gave you incorrect information regarding the 4.9 kernel for Odroid XU4.

The Odroid C2 does not currently have an official 4.x kernel yet:
https://github.com/hardkernel/linux

You'd need to ask Odroid if they are planning to implement it in the future.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
