Re: d-i does not show jfs in partition tool

OKay. / and all other patitions are ext3 (except of one that are ext2).
Can you will help me for migrating one partition to jfs and detecting the possible bug?

You could test it....
Make an ext3 for root, just big enough for debian, install debian and
then -- like I did -- make a data partition to play with.
If the bug is still there, it will manifest rather quick.

First of all, thanks for answering....

When I installed my Thecus N2100, I had the same. But thats half an year
ago. (As I wanted xfs not for the root fs it was not an issue. The
partition planed to hold this fs was a dm-mapped (luKS-crypted) one)
So, it's probably a not solved bug....
After installing one could part I it with [xj]js: However, I got servere
filesystem issues both with xfs and jfs.

I don't know which one causes which problem, but be warned:
- One of these created only a partion of 5-hundred-something Megabytes
on a 700G space. Couldn't convince it ....
- The other one partitinoed fine, but during benchmarking [as far as i
remember I used ltp - The Linux Test Project test suite] I got
filesystem corruptions. On top xfs-fsck segfaulted on this. It occured
at least two times in a row, so I expect a bug rather coincidence
However, I did not debug the issue. The problem could be gone (as this
was at 2.6.18), but you should be aware of it.
Could anyone confirm if these bugs are fixed?
If don't, I will think to pass to classical ext3 ;-)

I have a nslu2. Yesterday I downloaded debian armel-5.0beta2 from [http://www.slug-firmware.net/d-dls.php] and followed the instructions from [http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html] (I flashed with upslug2 my slug).

Well, in module selection step I choose, among others partman-jfs for formating my usb harddisk, but when I format one partition, JFS does not appears among options. If I choose partman-xfs for example xfs appears among these.

So it seems we have a bug or so?
Can anyone help me: now I have a aborted installation in my slug.

Thanks a lot,
