    Re: Don't use EXT4 on older systems

    My initial tests with ext4 were on an old Athlon 2600+ system, 1.5GB of RAM and 80GB PATA/IDE hard drive. Early on the system would freeze up requiring me to power cycle, but that got fixed with the new jaunty kernel image just days before official release. Since then that same test machine has been running fine. My newer systems and servers are running ext4 fine as well.

    Just as a note, I put 9.04 on a 1Ghz machine with 512Mb, used ext4 and I'm having zero problems too.

    Perhaps the OPer might want to double-check their system?
