Not really. A properly laid-out filesystem hierarchy will result in no writes to / (except for installworld/kernel). That removes the problem that journalling addresses, and is probably why softupdates is disabled by default for /. For large, active filesystems, journalling would be a big improvement when you had to run a foreground fsck.Thus spake Daxbert <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>:The inspiration for this email was from a thread in -questions: "Re: fsck takes very long after crash/reset" Is anybody currently working on or does there exist a JFS for FreeBSD?Various people (including myself and Hiten Pandya) have done work to port the GPL'd JFS implementation, but there's one ugly problem -- the GPL. We can make JFS into a kernel module (avoiding the static-link policy of the GPL), but then it can only (legally) be used on non-root filesystems, as the code to read the root filesystem must be statically linked into the kernel. This in itself makes JFS support somewhat pointless.
