Hi, I am new to the list. I have just install the linux-XFS and created
a 4GB partition
for XFS. I have some problems that I would like to report.
(BTW - my system is a BP6 with dual celeron 366, 128MB RAM, a 20GB
Maxtor on
  the ATA66 channel.)
1) My first try was to include all options for XFS - which include the
META option.
     This cause a hard hang on one of the CPU. After reading one of the
recent message,
     I turned that off and was able to copy my 4GB / to the XFS - which
originally
    hanged.
2) While the second try seems to work properly - I was not able to boot
the system
    with the XFS root partition. The boot process hanged before init
run. (/boot is
    a small ext2.) Is this a known problem? And, is there a work around?

Other than these, XFS seems to ork - but than again, I did not try out
enough yet -
haven't decided on how best to load it beside using it as /....
