My root file system is on a btrfs partition. My
/chroot directory has a number of btrfs subvolumes in it which prevent me from deleting it with
rm -rf /chroot. In an attempt to delete all the subvolumes, I tried listing just the subvolumes below
/chroot by using the
-o, which the man page says "print only subvolumes below specified path".
# btrfs subvolume list -o /chroot ID 593 gen 6616 top level 5 path chroot/base-devel/root ID 594 gen 6618 top level 5 path chroot/multilib-devel/root ID 595 gen 6620 top level 5 path chroot/base/root ID 597 gen 6624 top level 5 path chroot/twm/root ID 599 gen 6628 top level 5 path chroot/lxde/root ID 601 gen 6655 top level 5 path chroot/wheezy/root ID 602 gen 6684 top level 5 path chroot/sid/root ID 603 gen 6862 top level 5 path var/lib/machines
To my surprise, this returns the subvolume in /var/lib/macines (which I do not want to delete). This leads me to 3 questions:
What does the
How do I list only subvolumes below
How can I delete a directory with an unknown number of subvolumes?
I am running Arch Linux with the 4.2.5 kernel and btrfs-progs v4.3.1
