    Who wants to touch me?

    My router broke on Christmas day :( I wanted a day off.

    But I just fixed an erroneous Linux file partition all by myself! I'm so unfathomably proud. Can I have muchos flufflage please? It is Christmas after all...







    ... God I hate computers. Sometimes.

    I'm not entirely sure he meant it in that way....

    ...but go ahead, it could be good for a laugh. :)

    Back on topic (this is the hardware forum after all, we can't appear too "general"), is there anything that I should be aware of with regards to this file system issue? fsck fixed it, but it happened "by itself" - which is concerning.

    Can anyone recommend what may cause this in a Linux set up, and whether I should be concerned? It's an ext3 filesystem, so should be pretty solid I believe.

    Could be a hardware error or an unclean restart. I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it turns into a regular occurence. Fsck is generally OK at sorting these things out for you.

    I thought ReiserFS was what all the cool kids used nowadays?

    really cool kids use magnets to manipulate the inodes by hand :)

    Personally, I shrink myself down to the size of a micron and shove the atoms on the platter around manually. It's the only way to be sure.

    Early versions of that were horrible. Have they sorted out the reliability issues yet?

    when I used (early) reiser on linux, it would crash in combination with big raids on a certain raid card. that's about all I know of it, other than it seemed very fast (when working ;))

    I think it had some trouble with its' journal. If it hadn't commited and you had any kind of outage, you could wind up losing a fair wodge of data. Added to this the fact that it didn't get on too well with certain kernels......

    I like ext3. Boring is good as far as file systems are concerned :)

    It is far more stable now. XFS is the new bleeding edge filesystem last time I looked in on Linuxland. Gentoo recommend ReiserFS as the filesystem of choice for non-boot partitions. Ext2 will always have a place there.

    Might well take another look at it then. When it worked, it was very fast.

    I've heard of XFS. It's a Silicon Graphics creation. I think it's also part of the reason why SCO are screaming blue murder about Linux at the mo as well. would be interesting to see how they all match up these days.

    I have a feeling that ext 3 will still be where it's at reliability wise though,

    Fairly simple sum up.:)
