Could somebody please tell me what the difference is between
- xfs (I have never heard of this one before)
So far all I know is that they are all enhanced file systems that aim
to do better then EXT2.
So, from that above system:
- which ones support ACLs (I heard something about EXT2 supporting
ACLs, or am I mistaken)?
- support for capabilities (see
http://www.eros-os.org/faq/basics.html#whatis-eros for details on what
I mean here)? This looks like (to me) it might be more important then
ACLs, but may require changing a lot more then just the file system.
- which ones don't require file system checking on startup? How reliable
- what about performance issues?
- are atomic transactions supported?
I think this is a summary of important issues I have heard of
surrounding file systems. I might have missed other points.
At the moment I am more interested in the aims of each project, as I
realize that they are still under development.
