Description of problem:
why only ext3? most distros allow you to use reiserfs, xfs, etc...
you seam to be the only distro supporting ext3 only...
are you saving this basic feature for your server products?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: ext3 is the only file system available... why
Expected Results: should be able to choose from ext3, reiserfs, xfs, etc
see suse... (just to give you an example)
anaconda has the support, they're just not enabled by default as a
distribution level decision.
i know that, but why not enableing them by default?
suse has that and from my understanding suse is now kinda like a
direct competitor... anyway, i think that it would be very nice to
enable all the fs by default...
This falls down to what the kernel wants to support by default.
suse enables all sorts of other things too. We're not blindly following them off
the cliff just because 'xxxx option is cool'.
It all comes down to what we consider to be supportable.
The other filesystems are available, but if you hit bugs in them, you're
basically on your own (take the pieces to the upstream maintainers).
Some users don't like this, so we don't make everything under the sun available.
