/proc/filesystems (List Of Supported Filesystem)

Posted: August 7, 2013 in Uncategorized

/proc/filesystems is the file used to detect filesystems supported by running kernel. You can quickly run grep or cat command to display the list of all supported file system. nodev indicates that the file system is not associated with a physical device such as /dev/sdb1. If you see ext3 or vfat, it means you will be able to mount ext3, ext4 and vfat based file systems.

[root@afzalkhan ~]#cat /proc/filesystem

nodev   sysfs
nodev   rootfs
nodev   proc
nodev   usbfs
        ext3
        ext4
        vfat
....
 

For example, if the iso9660 fllesystem not listed, you can not mount standard CD-ROM file system. To add support simply recompile kernel with iso9660 filesystem support.
