i have no experience with that. on my servers, i use xfs, and it does well. on my lower end machines and desktops i run ext3. even though it is "old" and "slow", it seems to work the best for me personally, i would wipe my harddrive, try out a couple of FSs and see which you like. overall, though, FS choice isn't going to be the biggest deal on your system. i would make sure to make sure you use a minimal set of use flags (note: minimal set != the minimal use flag) and be sure to use a small and fast WM. also, be wary of running large bemoths like OOo all the time, and be sure, as always, to excise unnecessary processes. if you have not already done so, rolling your own kernel is a _must_. ensure that nothing is built into the kernel that isn't needed. - -- smithj Gentoo Developer [ desktop-misc && netmon && documentation ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFCwxUjl5AvwDPiUowRAnnmAJ44Safk8WeoZ3goa7ZiroICFGHn3wCgwIx6 EYPgAr0DG60Ru2tEihsNJ6U= =8DxL -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-performance@g.o mailing list
