How can I add Minix filesystem support to Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) with Linux kernel 3.8? I have the Minix filesystem source code from an older version of Linux (2.0.39).

The 3.8 kernel has the minix filesystem source code. You just have to enable it in the kernel config when you build your kernel.

make menuconfig

Maybe you could explain how to do that? :D – Seth Jun 21 '13 at 15:05
Wow, I cannot believe I missed that (…)! Can I add support without changing the kernel? – Devyn Collier Johnson Jun 21 '13 at 15:05
@DevynCollierJohnson, like I said, you just have to enable it when you configure your kernel build ( make menuconfig ). – psusi Jun 21 '13 at 15:08
