will reiser4 fs convert?


I want to use reiser4, but will it convert all the data? or will i have to start from *scratch*?

i just built a lfs 6.1 build. and, I want to change the fs, but, will wait if it will kill everything?

No, I don't believe you can convert, even from ReiserFS 3 to ReiserFS 4.

You cannot convert to the reiser4, "in place."

You can easily change to the reiser4 filesystem though. See

"Installing your favorite Linux Distro on Reiser4."

By the way,... there is little point in converting filesystems, as this would mean the initial and final filesystem are almost the same,.... in which case, why bother.
