I'm using XFS on RH7.1 successfully so far and I'm pretty happy with it. My problem is a little off topic for this list, but it is semi-related. Because I don't want to have to manage another type of journaling filesystem, I'd like to run XFS on Solaris 8 and I was wondering if it was available for Solaris 8. I have a bunch of Linux boxes and one Solaris box and I'd rather not have to go through the extra work and I can't get rid of the Solaris box (unfortunately).
You will have to convert that solaris box to Linux then. Solaris is not planned and unless they do some really groovy things with their code and licenses I don't think it's even possible.
Any pointers to a Solaris version of XFS would be appreciated....
There are none.XFS was specifically put under the GPL to prevent Sun from "just" incorporating XFS into Solaris at no development cost.
Cheers -- Seth Every program has two purposes one for which it was written and another for which it wasn't I use the last kind.
