    Best filesystem for DeLi Linux on pentium 4 laptop?


    I was wondering what's the best filesystem to use with DeLi linux on a pentium 4 laptop with about 30 gig hd.

    thanks in advance

    Ext 3 is always good and stable to use. It is what I use on IDE Platter drives (Laptop 2 1/2" or Desktop 5 "}.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

    What about ext 4? Isn't it better than ext 3 since it's an extension of it?

    $spacer_close

    What about ext 4
    I don't know. I don't run Deli or Ext 4.

    Welcome to the forums!

    You really should try both if you want to know which is best for you, your hardware, and your choice of Linux distribution. That said, I too run ext3 on all my machines.

    I've been running ext4 since it was marked stable in kernel 2.6.28, without problems. I've definitely noticed a performance gain, and it shaved a few seconds off my boot time.
