<br><div><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">My question is, Is XFS a good file system to use for Mythtv (or<br>anything?). I could maybe have save the files on the disk if I'd done
<br>something differently, but I've never used any file system that has<br>failed so badly after a simple system reset. I know that resetting a<br>running machine is not good, but we all have to do it sometimes. I've
<br>had to do it a lot over the last 15 years, and I've lost the odd file<br>before, but never whole drives!</blockquote><div><br>Well, I've posted about this before, but certainly on my Fedora box, which is running LVM over RAID1 mirrors, I found XFS unstable. Under normal working conditions, I got kernel oopses somewhere around weekly, maybe a little less frequently... unfortunately, it often happened while I was watching TV. >:| And when I was running an active bittorrent client on my backend, I regularly had lockups *nightly*.
<br><br>Since, then, I've migrated to ext3, and the system has been solid ever since (the incremental delete functionality is sufficient for my needs).<br><br>Brett.<br></div><br></div><br>
