what's wrong with ext?

Nathaniel Edwards
Nathaniel Edwards

slow compared to xfs

Jacob Reyes

Overall, XFS is better than EXT4... other than not being able to shrink volumes.

this.
ext is just spaghet torvalds code
it also fucks up on rolling distros (like getting errors after update) and fucks up again when kernel panics itself (being part of the kernel itself) while xfs doesn't do bullcrap.

How can it be the best filesystem if it can't even run windows

You can't even spread your filesystem on pancakes.

<Uses something marked in the documentation as unstable
<Encounters bug that makes him lose data
<wtf I hate btrfs now
Anything moderately complex is going to have its fair share of bugs. Just because some projects try to shove some under the rug doesn't mean that the amount of bugs in the past impacts the current state of the filesystem.

Honestly, I don't know much about filesystems or why one would be good over another. I've just been using ext4 for about 14 years or so and I never bothered to think about it. What would be a good primer on this?

Blame your shitty meme distro for that. Ext4 is as solid as a rock.

I've been using FFS/FFS2 (on OpenBSD) for same time, and I like not thinking much about the filesystem.

Dominic Collins

ehh, I never have done benchmarks, so I didn't know how it was. Isn't xfs used on bsd's exclusively though?

The whole filesystem was marked as unstable user. I will give my argument as a comparison for (you).
Lets look at the goal and purpose of a filesystem. Its primary function is to store data, I don't anyone will disagree. Now lets look at something else, lets say a cryptography library or algorithm. The sole purpose of one of these is to keep data encrypted and secure, again I don't think anyone will disagree. Now if at any point in its lifetime the cryptography algorithm performs the opposite function and leaks your data, anyone logical and sane would stop using that library. Unless of course there were no other options. In which case you would need to evaluate if this is something you could recover from or if it would be better to start from scratch. Luckily this doesn't apply in this case. Lets go back to our filesytem example. We already know that the purpose of the filesystem is to store data, so we can continue to extrapolate that the opposite is to lose data. If at any point in its lifetime of being presented to anyone besides the developers it does the opposite of what its supposed to and loses data, anyone logical and sane would stop using it especially considering there are options available where that have never done this. Of course linux users have a long history of cuckoldry when it comes to this and tend to prefer the worse is better approach[1].

Well, shrinking isn't safe on ext4 either.

Brandon Myers

I've been using btrfs on my laptop and never experienced any data loss. Numerous times I've had the laptop forcefully shutdown without unmounting the filesystem. This includes times when it is actively writing to the disk.

I think it's the opposite. Wikipedo only shows experimental support for FreeBSD.

ahh. Maybe that's why I just stick to ext.

XFS is a remnant of SGI's IRIX. That's how fucking old it is. In Moronix benchmark tests, it is faster than Ext4, but it's a dinosaur. I prefer being able to grow and shrink my partitions and not having to worry about defragmenting my hard drives. This is why I would go out of my way to select EXT4 if XFS was default.

Liam Reed

My biggest problem with XFS so far has been the number of programs (including GCC) that cannot cope with inode64. That is a major pain in the ass, especially when running gaymes in Wine.

Luke Watson

XFS still has fragmentation issues? Weird. I thought that was solved with journaling et al.

ext3 is fine
FAT is fine
just buy moar disk

James Reyes
James Reyes

FAT can't handle really large files.

Brandon Sanders
Brandon Sanders

The reference implementation can't. The reason FAT is the choice FS in embedded applications is because it's so barebones that there's little overhead and OEMs can just slap higher-level extensions on top of it.

Brandon Wright
Brandon Wright

implying NTFS is good
implying FAT32 isn't obsolete on a HDD/SSD

I don't have any choice but to accept.

go to prison fir 20 years
finally get released after 20 years
the filesystem you wrote over 20 years ago is still better than pretty much all linux filesystems

There is fragmentation, but not really an issue.
