why is it every time i load a new distro i never find one that has default FFS support? why is it however that virtually/probably every distro out there comes ready to read proprietary FAT(FAT16), VFAT(FAT32) and NTFS partitions but not non-proprietary filesystems such as FFS?!?
*BSD are opensource too and they deserve to be treated with respect! i notice that when i plugged an old HD in, that had openbsd on it and tried to mount an ext3 FS it worked perfectly and i was able to get my data, so they aren't biased in that respect!
i am getting sick of recompiling the kernel just to make this simple change that has virtually no impact, if any at all, on the size/footprint of the kernel!
does anyone know of any distro's that come out the box with ffs support please?
