Post by wsnake » Sun Nov 28, 2004 5:23 pm

An interesting project that can be used in future versions of the ReactOS

Partial support

Post by SirTalon » Sun Nov 28, 2004 9:03 pm

I believe one of the developers already had Ext2 support to a useable state (or semi-usable). It was posted in the blogs or news a few months ago. Though to implement Ext3 support the only real thing that has to be done is adding support in ReactOS for a journal (or that may be a driver only thing).

I do hope that some of the popular Linux filesystem are officially included in ReactOS (even if its only Ext2 for a while).

I'm hoping to learn C at the start of next year (already know C++), so I'll try and start helping then w/ actual coding then.

ROS is going to end up having to have NTFS and FATxs, like Windows, but there's nothing to stop it from knowning XFS AND EXTx...

Hopefully ReactOS will support Ext3, XFS, ReiserFS 3/4 (I'm wanting to use 4 so bad!), and many others. If ReactOS is able to support many multiple filesystems that means it will be (relatively) easy to add support for new filesystems out there.

Also be a kick up the afs of a certain OTHER OS that doesn't like to recognize very many (I think it's 4).

ReiserFS

Post by e7 » Thu Dec 09, 2004 8:34 pm

I don't know if it help, but I've found a ReiserFS-Tool for Windows, released under GPL: http://p-nand-q.com/download/rfstool.html

Maybee you can implement this in Ros

Intresting tool, and its under the GPL! I think its probably for ReiserFS 3 (since 4 doesn't have a journal).

EXT2IFS

Post by mrkvus » Mon Dec 20, 2004 12:21 am

I also use EXT2IFS driver for WXP, it's able to read Ext3 too, but not to write :-( Nevertheless, it is under GPL and its source could be inspiring...
