The CVS tree is currently at 2.4.0. Perhaos you could use that. I have
not used the CVS snapshots, so I don't know what version they are at now.
the cvs tree is the userspace tools *and* a XFS-patched kernel source tree.
that makes life easy. Out of curiosity, what about reiser didn't you like?
I ran it for many months without a hitch, however, the recovery times
seemed a bit long at times, and they didn't come out with patches
consistantly/fast enough. the XFS developers have been *very* good at
keeping on top of that, of which I am very impressed (XFS developers reading
this: THANKS GUYS! :) have fun moving from reiser to XFS :)
