I have a brand new SSD and I'd like to install 12.04 onto it with nilfs as the filesystem for the root partition.
I can't find any easy way of doing that. If I boot from the 12.04 LiveCD, I can install nilfs-tools (I had to download it via wget — I couldn't seem to apt-get it) and I was able to format a partition as nilfs via mkfs.nilfs.
However, when I click "install Ubuntu" and start the installer and tell it I want to choose the partition, it wants to reformat it and only gives me options for other filesystems (reiser, ext, etc.) but no nilfs, even though nilfs support has been installed (I was able to create a nilfs filesystem on my partition).
Any tips or suggestions?
