Please refer to: http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/cvs_download.html for instructions. A snapshot of the CVS tree is also availble: ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/ftpdir/03302000linux-2.3-xfs.tgz This tar file will not be generated on a reqular basis. A "cvs update -d" should be performed once the tree is download and unpacked. *************** PRELIMINARY WORK IN PROGRESS CODE ***************** While most of the basic functionality of the XFS file system is working, this code is still very unstable. IT MAY CRASH OR HANG YOUR SYSTEM! sooner or later. THIS IS BLEEDING-EDGE CODE. This release has only been tried on IA32 systems. People are certianly free to work on getting it running on other architectures. Many of the more advanced XFS features are yet to be completed: Guaranteed Rate IO Direct IO (Raw I/O) Real time IO Delayed Allocation Integration with Volume Managers Access Control Lists. etc... For a list of items currently being working on or soon to be worked on refer to: http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/todos.html This list will updated as new items are found. A beta release is planned in a few months and at that time we will release an xfs rpm. There is a firstname.lastname@example.org mail list that you can subscribe to and watch problems/issues as the get fixed and are found. Please e-mail linux-xfs with any issues/problems/... that you find in the code or while running. If you want to help with specific work items, please e-mail email@example.com. Thanks, The XFS Team.
