ext2 filesystem to be supported?

Postby werner » 2008-07-10 17:48

I was curious if ext2 was going to still be an option for a filesystem on lenny when it goes stable. I understand that it does not have journaling support but I have used it so much I would like to continue using it since it has served my purposes for a LONG time!

I don't see why it wouldn't be as it is availible now in lenny. I occationally use it for my temp but other than that I tend to use Reiser and ext3.

I can't imagine ext2 being removed.

I still use ext2 for the partition on which I keep media files since it is faster than ext3.

As long and Linus and the bunch keep support in the kernel, it should be in Debian. But speaking of ext2, when I tried to install Mandriva it didn't support ANYTHING else.
