If that's the problem, then why doesn't sysinstall enable it by default when partitioning for a new install?Darren Pilgrim wrote: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.Soft updates are disable on / by default because of the chicken and egg problem of runing tunefs on /.
