    Just curious... I'm sure I'll be installing Debian Squeeze again soon. Does anyone know if there would be any problems if I installed Debian on a ReiserFS journaling system rather then Ext3?

    What are the differences?

    Been looking for a while today and could only find other peoples' forum posts with limited answers. Here is something interesting I found:

    ReiserFS isn't supported and with its creator in jail it probably won't be supported in the future.

    Go with ext3 or ext4.

    i don't see any reason to use ext3 anymore, unless your kernel doesn't support it
