Comment 1 Colin Coe 2004-10-24 23:50:17 EDT
I should have also requested the option to use file systems other 
than ext[23] (i.e. reiserfs) at install time.
Comment 2 Suzanne Hillman 2004-10-25 12:05:21 EDT
Internal RFE bug #137053 entered; will be considered for future releases.
Comment 3 Colin Coe 2004-10-25 18:47:12 EDT
Please consider for EL4.  We should not have to go into single user 
mode and unmount /usr (for example) to grow the filesystem.  It is 
this lack of functionality that is preventing Linux being installed 
on critical systems.

A filesystem that can be grown on-line *is critical*.

RedHat is touting the aquirement of GFS.  Why not do something useful 
with it?  Does RedHat really what to make us use NFS instead?
Comment 4 dff 2004-10-27 15:50:11 EDT
GFS is available for purchase as a layered product for RHEL 3:


Red Hat's policy is to support the ext3 filesystem in the core
product, and not reiserfs or OCFS.

Note that RHEL 4 will add support for on-line growing of ext3
filesystems in conjunction with Logical Volume Manager 2 -- built into
the base RHEL OS.
