2.2.5-3.0 File system compatibility

2.2.5-3.0 File system compatibility

Post by Kurt Schafe » Sat, 28 Feb 1998 04:00:00

Installed a 3.0 snapshot to test SMP functionality and would now like to
'downgrade' back to 2.2.5 stable.

I've got 2 partitions (on two seperate hard drives) that I would like to
preserve if at all possible. If I re-install 2.2.5, will I be able to mount
the drives without needing to newfs them ?

1. Enhanced Filing system - file system like DEC Advanced File system for Linux

    Some time ago I was involved in discussion on this news group regarding the
design of a new file system for Linux.  The main aim is to support dynamic size
changing by adding/removing partitions from the file system at run time without
interrupting processes that are using the file system.  Another major feature is
logging so that a system crash or power failure can be recovered from without
data loss or an excessive amount of time spent running FSCK.
