I have been running XFS for a few months now, and have notices a few
errors while mounting/umounting drives. I am
running the CVS kernel on a debian/unstable box. I have reiser, XFS and devfs
running on my system as well.
On bootup, I get this:
read_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on dev 03:06
read_old_super_block: try to find super block in old location
read_old_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on dev 03:06.
Start mounting filesystem: ide0(3,6)
Ending clean XFS mount for filesystem: ide0(3,6)
VFS: Mounted root (xfs filesystem) readonly.
Now, I know that is a reiser error, but I can't figure out why that is
happening. ide0(3,6) is my root partition,
here's the line from my fstab:
/dev/hda6 / xfs defaults 0 1
so why is it attempting to mount it as reiser? This is just an error,
everything *works* fine. Could this be because
of devfs? i.e. devfs is not running when my root partition is mounted so it
comes up with that error?
The other issue I have run into is when I shutdown, it seems to take a
*long* time to umount everything. not sure if
it's reiser or XFS causeing the hangup...I am going to edit my init scripts and
make them more verbose so I can see where
it hangs. it takes about 10 seconds to umount all my local filesystems..which
is just a 20gb drive (about 6 partitions I
Last item is RAID/LVM compatibility. I understand that there are/were
issues with software RAID and XFS. I am getting
a hardware RAID card and will be using it in a RAID0 configuration. I just
wanted to be sure that won't be a problem.
I also intend on using LVM with it. Are there any known issues with
LVM and XFS? Or even reiser and LVM, for that
matter (doesn't hurt to ask :)
Thank you in advance for the time.
