Question about partitioning in Haiku
i have a question and i hope somebody can give me an short explnation:
I've seen in mailing list and forums, that there are some peoples, who
doesn't creating any partitioning systems on his drives, just using
the whole disk as BFS disk.
I never did it yet, first, because i had always multi-boot
environment, second: i always thought it is a requiment, so i was a
bitsurprised to hear, that it is actually possible.
But i have some question:
- what are the benefits to using the whole disk as BFS? Is there any gains?
- are the Haiku bootloader capable too boot a disk without partition scheme?
- doesn't make it the recovery impossible? (there is plenty good disk
diag-recovery tools in the wild and i'm not sure if they can work with
Something else: is there any plan for improving the BFS? I heard, many
people like to see ZFS in Haiku. Is it possible (theoretically) to
swap the BFS code to ZFS [hex 42 -> 5a :) ].
Thanks and keep up this good work!
