Re: Mount HTFS and EAFS under linux

As far as I know, there is no support for those filesystems in the Linux kernel.

In 2003, the owner of the SCO UNIX code (currently The SCO Group, previously known as Caldera) started a series of lawsuits, alleging (among other things) that Linux includes some of SCO Group's copyrighted code. Although some of the lawsuits are still going on, so far the SCO Group hasn't been able to prove their allegations at all.

Since 2003, I'd guess no serious Linux kernel programmer has been inclined to touch anything SCO-related even with the proverbial 10-foot pole, to avoid becoming entangled to those lawsuits.

Before those lawsuits (and their countersuits...) have reached their ultimate conclusion, I believe the chance of someone implementing HTFS or EAFS support for Linux is somewhere between slim and none.
