also here support for this fs would be welcome!

I know that ext4 is stable since kernel 2.6.28, but did anybody try to compile 2.6.27 with ext4?

Tomas had stated there will be no more revision of slax 6 so far as new features are concerned . Any revison will be mainly due to bug fixes. Slax 7 is likely to take quite some time.

hi

i dont need new slax version, just kernel module which could be uploaded as slax module to this website.
im quite lazy to compile kernel myself that's why i asked if someone did it already.

cheers

No seas eee von cuate, porque no te esperas que Tomas cree una version nueva de Slax contra Slackware 13.0 y ya tenga capacidad para leer ext4.

Why are you lazy, why not wait for Tomas to make a new version of Slax that has native ext4 support?

[SOLVED]

After some searches i found that ext4dev support is built into kernel in default slax config. As it's developement code you need to set up special test flag on ext4 partitions:

root@slax:~# mount -t ext4dev /dev/sda8 /home/

root@slax:~# dmesg

EXT4-fs: sda8: not marked OK to use with test code.


Now we need to use tune2fs tool:

root@slax:~# tune2fs -E test_fs /dev/sda8


And that's it!
You are able to mount ext4 fs partition without warning:

root@slax:~# mount -t ext4dev /dev/sda8 /home/
root@slax:~# dmesg

EXT4 FS on sda8, internal journal
EXT4-fs: delayed allocation enabled
EXT4-fs: file extents enabled
EXT4-fs: mballoc enabled
EXT4-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.


Use it carefully as it's developement code ;]

Ext4 in fairly robust code would be appreciated - I quad boot Slax with Ubuntu current and next release, sharing files is very useful but doesn't work as is with ext4 partitions.

Slax could be handy as a rescue disk if I could trust it with ext4. Ubuntu development code by nature breaks, especially xorg.

Thanks, Jerry
