Now I use openSUSE 11.3 and he fully satisfy me. But I have problems with drivers for my RAID HBA (drivers did not to be compiled on 2.6.36 or higher kernel) and want to migrate to PC-BSD. Now I testing PC-BSD on my computer and have some problems with disk array.
I use HighPoint RocketRAID 2640X4 HBA
for RAID5 disk array. My partitions:
# parted -l
Model: HPT DISK_8_0 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 32.3kB 280MB 280MB primary ext3 boot
2 280MB 1000GB 1000GB extended lba
5 280MB 17.5GB 17.2GB logical linux-swap(v1)
6 17.5GB 51.8GB 34.4GB logical reiserfs
7 51.8GB 1000GB 948GB logical reiserfs
# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda6 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 data=journal,acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda7 /home reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
I need to install PC-BSD but in /home partition (sda7, reiserFS) I have ~630 GiB of UNBACKUPPED
data and I not have purposes to backup it. I convert /home partition (sda7, reiserFS) from ext4 to ReiserFS 2 years ago using Gparted by <shrink-grow-copy> loop algorithm (1 week of CPU time need) 2 years ago and I may to repeat this again. But I can not find methods for resizing UFS or ZFS partitions...
- What filesystem is faster: UFS or ZFS?
- What filesystem is highly supported in PC-BSD 9 (rw support): ext2; ext3; ext4; jfs; xfs
- Why is optimal way to install PC-BSD on my array and mount existing /home partition (sda7, reiserFS) to PC-BSD?
PS: I am sorry for my little english...
