Getting Source Code Using Git
You can get the source code of NILFS utilities with "git clone" command:
$ git clone git://github.com/nilfs-dev/nilfs-utils.git
Standalone kernel modules of NILFS2 are also obtainable in the same manner:
- Kernel module for CentOS 6, Scientific Linux 6
$ git clone git://github.com/nilfs-dev/nilfs2-kmod-centos6.git
- Kernel module for CentOS 5, Scientific Linux 5, and old vanilla kernels (2.6.18~2.6.29)
$ git clone git://github.com/nilfs-dev/nilfs2-module.git
These repositories can be updated with "git pull" command. Please see http://git-scm.com/ for further information.
Preparations To Build nilfs-utils
Since these repositories don't include any intermediate files, you need to run autogen.sh first.
$ cd nilfs-utils $ ./autogen.sh
This may require libtool, autoconf (-2.6 or later), and automake packages.
Then, you will be able to build & install utilities in the usual manner:
$ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install
You may need or want to tweak build options. For details on build options, please see the README file contained in nilfs-utils.
