Linux 2.6.28 Kernel Released
Phoronix: Linux 2.6.28 Kernel Released
As a special Christmas present, Linus Torvalds has announced the release of the Linux 2.6.28 kernel. The 2.6.28 kernel stabilizes the EXT4 file-system, delivers the Graphics Execution Manager for GPU memory management, brings forth several new drivers, and is home to several other improvements. The Linux 2.6.28 kernel release announcement can be read at LKML.org...
I have the same thoughts ;-) but I hope that ext4 wont eat 50GB of my 300GB partition like ext3 ;/ so for now I have to use reiserfs although I'm sick of it.

I think that's corrupting space. Don't blame your file system, thank it for saving your butt.
Flawless kernel. Godspeed .
Last time I've formatted a partition to EXT3, it took over 8GB of my 300 GB HDD on reserved space.
Does anyone here who actually formatted a partition with EXT4 knows how it behaves?
Thanks for replying.

But, thanks again for sharing this with us.
I left the default size on my primary HDD and set -m 0 to all my backup drivers (Music, Movies, Pictures etc)
So far, so good.
I'm assuming that EXT4 still sets to 5% to root reserved space.
Have you (or anyone reading this thread) upgraded your existent EXT3 partitions to EXT4?
I'm really curious about how it went through.
Thanks for reading.
