MKCRAMFS(8)                 Debian GNU/Linux Manual                MKCRAMFS(8)



NAME
       mkcramfs - make a compressed ROM file system


SYNOPSIS
       mkcramfs  [-h]  [-b  blksize]  [-e edition] [-i file] [-n name] dirname
       outfile


DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the mkcramfs command.   This  manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used
       by others), because the original program does not have a manual page.

       mkcramfs constructs a CramFs from the contents of dirname.   The  image
       of the resulting file system is placed in outfile.


OPTIONS
       -h     Give a brief help message.


       -E     Make all warnings errors (non-zero exit status).


       -b blksize
              Set the block size of the generated file system.


       -e edition
              Set the edition number (part of fsid).


       -i file
              Insert  a  file  image  into  the  filesystem (requires Linux >=
              2.4.0).


       -n name
              Set the name of the CramFs filesystem.


       -p     Pad by 512 bytes for boot code.


       -s     Sort directory entries (old option, ignored).


       -v     Turn on verbose mode.


       -z     Make explicit holes (requires Linux >= 2.3.39).
