    Default do not install on reiserfs

    Hi,

    just a pointer for those it ay concern. I would not advice installing opensuse 11 on reiserfs. I tried 3 times and it always freezes my system minutes after boot. Now that i reinstalled on ext3 I found there is already a bug for this confirming the issue, it has something to do with beagle freezing the system on reiserfs:

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug...headAndLogIn=1

    i think it is odd that this bug only shows 'factory' though and that the severity is merely critical instead of 'blocker'.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I went with the default (Ext3).

    Should of been blocker. ext3 is no panacea.
    Sigh.... (why do we WANT to be identical to Red Hat in EVERY way?)

    You can always use JFS or XFS Cox

    And identical to pretty most of the distros out there. ext3 doesn't belong to RH, anymore than Linux does.

    And I would say that the future of reiserfs is more murky. At least there is work on ext4. I don't think reiserfs4 will see the light of production use.

    i do prefer reiser3 to ext3 though and therefor reverted from the new default ext3 to good old reiser, but it ate my system :-(

    just changing the fstab after install to noatim/noacl will fix this so I guess I will reinstall once again.

    JFS is broken (I don't think it ever worked),
    XFS is limited, but certainly an option if
    you just want meta data journaling.

    I hate all of this regression... but
    I have patience.

    Heh...and to think I can recall when reiserfs was the default on SuSE.

    Cheer up guys; at least we're not using HFS/NTFS like windows; or fat32 like OSX.
    But really, we need a new filesystem. Ext3 has it's short comings, Reiser is doomed, and XFS is horribly outdated (but at least not as badly as others!), and JFS isn't supported.
