    Re: ext4! the speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed!

    I think you're saying that Jaunty needs to run on EXT 4, but my question is, Will Intrepid run on ext 4.

    If anyone has read the actual article, there are actually times when EXT4 is worse than any of the others.

    Subjectively, to me, it feels faster than reiserfs for general use. And this is pretty good, because I used to consider reiserfs the fastest general-purpose filesystem in Linux (excluding experimental filesystems like reiser4, etc.).

    Cool Re: ext4! the speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed!

    I'm still waiting for VaporFS (BtrFS).

    How is it vaporware? It's being tested with the .29 kernel...

    Intrepid cannot mount EXT4 w/o the kernel and e2fsprogs from the Jaunty repository, is what he ment.

    It was supposed to be completed by the end of 2008, it's only at an alpha stage...

    That does not mean it is vaporware. Development was just slower than expected but the project is very much alive and active.

    Wonder what people would call the HURD kernel seeing how many years that has been going on?

    I still use killer... i mean reiserfs for my / and ext3 for my /home. If it's easy enough to convert ext3 to ext4, i'll definitely give it a go.
    The truth may be out there, but the lies are already in your head.

    I have a fairly crufty Ubuntu Jaunty install on my laptop and two twin harddisks that I mirror from time to time (due to ATA instability).

    Now this time around I reformatted one of them to Ext4 and then rsynced the system over and my boot time to the fully loaded desktop on ext4 was cut in half (2 min vs 1 min). Before it was reiserfs.

    Now of course a cleanly formatted partition is faster than a fragmented, fairly filled, old partition, and the drive models aren’t identical, but I was impressed nonetheless.
