News: Ext3 retraction

I know a lot of people are going to hate me for this... but after debating for a long long time, I've decided to go back to reiserfs. The reason? Freespace optimisation. The same data that goes into Gentoox on a rieserfs rootfs doesnt even fit into an ext3 rootfs. This is criminally inefficient. Now that sparkle exists, I no longer feel that its necessary to use ext3 since any corruption problems can be fixed quite easily. What I am going to look into now is integrating sparkle into the next gentoox release (i.e. adding a button for it into cromwell and having it installed on the hard drive). Also, I think I will keep the rootfs at 4gb.

If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

Gentoox currently runs on reiserfs 3.x this is the version that is stable and included in the 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels

Reiserfs 4 is not yet stable but when it is released as stable I'm sure it will make its way into the kernel and on to our systems
