    I've created an XFS-root-filesystem, with an external log, on a raid5-device, but I can't for the life of me get Linux to mount it when booting. It oopses.

    Has anybody got such a setup to work?

    If I use an internal log it mounts just fine, but that yields bad performance currently on raid5...

    Best regards,

    So what exactly is the best journaling FS? For a while I heard reiser. Then people were saying ext3. Now this article suggests that alot of people are using jfs or xfs. Seems like opinions get changed about ever 6-8 weeks.
    Lemme rephrase that quesion: is there a journaling fs that people would NOT use under any circumstance? At this point in the game, are there any that are in production that really shouldnt be?
