I'm pleased to say that, as of today, the XFS/Linux Release 1.0 patches are
now available in the Debian 'unstable' (Sid) distribution. I'd like to
encourage people to test these packages and report on any issues via the
Debian bug tracking system.
Barring any major issues, these packages should also be available in the
'testing' (Woody)distribution in a couple of weeks.
The packages contain the patches from XFS R1.0, with a couple minor
modifications (none of which affect the substance of the patch), as
documented in the changelog. They can be found as 'kernel-patch-xfs' and
In order to make effective use of these, of course, Nathan Scott's excellent
official XFS userspace packages should be installed as well.
