is resierfs 4 ready?, and can it work under utf8 locale ?


does anyone know if reiserfs 4 is the least bit ready ... i would wait longer, but i kinda get crashes due to some bug in reiserfs 3.6 (i used LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 during install of stage 1 gentoo ... right now i have a running kernel, and i need to do a "emerge --newuse world" to enable nptl ... problem is, a few files gone to the fritz .. mainly /etc/group has suddenly gone away (portage cant access it, "ls /etc/group" says "permission denied", trying to edit the file produces a kernel backtrack (with it saying a bug in reiserfs at some line) ... a few other files other gave this ... problem is, they used to be fine, as in it suddenly just wanted to stop the files from working .......... so i was considering upgrading the kernel to use resierfs 4 (there are patches for 2.6.10 right?), and was wondering how stable it was (and if it would work under that locale i want to use)

Yes, reiser4 works but it's not as stable as reiser3. Probably the worst bug is that sometimes when I recompile the kernel the new one won't boot. If you keep a known good backup on your menu.lst it's safe enough. Also, when compiling glibc, make check fails (except if you're running a 2.6.9 kernel)

ahh, when i put in the livecd (to install a new kernel) i ran across "reiserfsck" ... a complete rebuild of the tree fixed all my problems , with only losing 3 symlinks, 1 dir, and 2 binary files to /lost+found (don't know were they went .. system works tho) ... hmm, seems like i can wait till reiserfs4 hits the main kernel line .... .. now my only problem is glibc .. it errors out when reinstalling it, something about "/bin/ls: Bad Interpretor : permission denied" .. i guess i reinstall of some other programs first should correct this (as /bin/sh works fine, and so does bash)

/me hits himself in the head

never mind on that /bin/ls problem ... it was my fault, in /etc/fstab i have things set so no exec's, or dev files will work on my /var partition .. problem was, /var is the default place gentoo compiles packages, and ./configure was executed from there

/me hits himself again

owell .. at least my problems are behind me now i hope (and the long road of writing fvwm config file, and configuring the desktop awaits .. after a new kernel with staircase in it
