Amiga Fast File System (AFFS) supported?

Greetings to you all. I have discovered that I am unable to mount Compact Flash cards formatted as Amiga FFS in Arch and its derivatives.

"sudo mount -t affs /dev/X /media/amiga" returns the following:

"mount: /media/amiga: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.
       dmesg(1) may have more information after failed mount system call."

The same command worked for me on Ubuntu, and the cards are functional. From some searching, it seems Debian contains some AFFS modules, and the Arch Wiki makes no mention of the Amiga FFS. Is Arch missing the AFFS modules that are present in Debian? Is it possible to have AFFS support on Arch, or am I at a loss here?

Thanks in advance

Re: Amiga Fast File System (AFFS) supported?

You have to load the affs kernel module first.
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/archl … unk/config

CONFIG_AFFS_FS=m

Currently active filesystems:

$ cat /proc/filesystems

Loadable modules:

$ find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -type f -name '*.ko*'
