MOUNT_CHFS(8)               System Manager's Manual              MOUNT_CHFS(8)

NAME
     mount_chfs -- mount a CHFS flash file system

SYNOPSIS
     mount_chfs

DESCRIPTION
     Mounts a flash file system from a flash(4) device.  CHFS file systems can
     be only mounted from flash devices.  For regular block devices like SSD
     drives or USB drives, please use a regular file system.  The file system
     will be created during the first mount.  CHFS stands for Chip File
     System.

EXAMPLES
           mount_chfs /dev/flash0 /mnt

SEE ALSO
     flash(4), fstab(5), mount(8), flash(9)

HISTORY
     CHFS was originally called ChewieFS during development.  The name was
     changed to avoid legal issues and to have a more neutral name.

AUTHORS
     CHFS was developed at the Department of Software Engineering, University
     of Szeged, Hungary.

BUGS
     CHFS has a few known bugs as of 2011.  Writing the FS full can cause
     problems.  Truncating a file and growing it again can cause the new bytes
     not having all zeroes, but filled with the old content instead.
