Description Toralf 2001-06-22 09:35:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.5-0.2.9 i686)

Description of problem:
Please integrate XFS sources from http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/ into
your kernel distribution. - Unless they are already included in the
official Linux source tree, that is, I'm unable to tell from the doc. on

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
mount -t xfs ...

Additional info:

Also note that there are certain issues related to installing kernel RPMs
from SGI on a Red Hat 7.1 system, such as the fact that devfsd from Red Hat
is not quite compatible with the SGI kernel.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-06-22 09:50:43 UTC
XFS is not a candidate for 7.1 kernels unless it gets merged into Linus'
2.4 tree (their patch touches a lot of core code, and they add syscalls
which is something we only do when Linus approves them)

Also, please take bugs against the SGI kernel to SGI not us, as they changed
several things we put in explicitly in order not to break things.
