'man 5 filesystems' makes no mention of ext4
Last modified: 2010-06-24 08:31:33 EDT
Description of problem:
In 'man filesystems', there is no mention at all of the ext4 filesystem
(only ext2 and ext3).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 5 filesystems
2. Search for "ext4".
Search returns nothing.
A description of ext4.
There should probably be an indication that ext4 is the default for Linux
(or is that specific to RH/Fedora?).
How about this.... most of the descriptions are -very- sparse, so I don't want to write an essay for ext4 ;)
ext4 is the next generation of the ext filesystem series. In addition to journaling, ext4 supports larger files and filesystems than ext3, and provides other modern features such as preallocation and an extent-based allocator.
Thanks, the change sent to upstream.
Fixed in man-pages-3.24-7.fc14.
