Why would you need to modify the kernel ?

Don't know.  That was just one of the fruit that fell out of the tree when I gave it a two minute shake this morning.  Still reading up on xfs - never had to deal with it before!


EDIT - OK, I just installed xfsprogs and was then able to format a usb stick as xfs.  I will include xfsprogs in Village_OB.  Any other requests !?

I've not had an issue installing to a usb stick.  What exactly is your install doing?

I usually use ext4, but flash drives don't have a drive cache.   When I format ext4
without flex_bg the flash drive runs 200% better.    xfs and ext3 do not have the
flex_bg option in ext4 which runs very slow on the flash drive.    Surprised you
haven't been disappointed with flash drive performance, unless ext3 was used,
which is good.

I've decided to use xfs for everything, has the best options by default, etc..
Noticed when I installed LV it wasn't available to  install on, so I made the
request.

XFS is a good and pretty much bulletproof filesystem. Right up there with ext4. I've used XFS for a long time without so much as a hiccup. And an fsck is lightning-quick!

Any other requests !?

AmigaFFS? BeFS?   :)

Hi,

What is this "flex_bg option" about ?

Hi,

What is this "flex_bg option" about ?

The option gives optimized storage of filesystem metadata, like bitmaps and inode tables.

Hi patrick,

I've only done a couple of test installs to usb stick with ext4 just to try them out.  I was going to suggest you install xfsprogs but of course that is not going to help you!  Sorry, but you need the new improved LinuxVillage with xfs support!  Doh!!

This can be done - there are a couple of other little improvements that needed to be sorted, so I guess a new LinuxVillage is about due.  It should be up in the next 24-48 hours - no new thread - I'll just update the current one.  Stay tuned.

Hi,

May I suggest you also install other filesystem tools which can be needed later by other new users and which you might not have installed yet ?

Let's see to seek for a list...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem#Types_of_file_systems

in which you can select more if needed (ie: btrfs, udf, ntfs, jfs... )

Without getting too carried away, what would recommend as a base list?

No problem at all.

First choices, especially for flash drives,

1) xfs
2) ext3 plus extent
3) ext4 minus flex_bg

Not saying flash drives are perfect, nor are HD's with some new installs I've tried.
Just better with the above IMHO.

I had a bigger message composed with some details from some of my filesystem
research but the system logged me out before I could hit the post button.

Can we set that to a higher time limit ?     We're not hiding anything needing a small
time limit.

thanks  Taco,

patrick

Would I just check out Gparted and see which ones aren't covered?

Yes why not ?

Patrick, I am not aware about time limit, and I am not sure why you were logged out. I'll have to get more clues about it.

PS: I will search but I don't know where yet.

Well it happened to me twice tonight, after a short period.

Also, if we should talk about filesystems in general, want to start a separate topic ?

1) Are you sure you didn't just have the connection to Internet suspended during a few seconds or such, while you where typing, and you didn't see it ?

2) You are totally free to start a separate topic if you want to continue this discussion specifically about filesystems.

/Edit: Patrick, look at this thread at the SMF forums and see if anything there is of some help to you?

Yes, I'm sure.    I've got 5 tabs opened and LV knocks me out every few minutes
or so if I do n't post or move around or whatever.

Just needs a higher time limit I'd say.

thanks for the response.
