Fedora Core 4 Support for HFS and VxFS filesystems

Hi there --

Does Fedora Core 4 support HFS and VxFS filesystems? If not, are there utilities or kernel modules that would enable support?

Shalom,

No.

ext3 is essentially a journaled filesysetm just like vxfs, but it is different and you can only mount an HFS or vxfs filesystem via NFS on a system that supports these formats natively.

To see what filesystems can be worked with.

fdisk /dev/hda (your disk may vary)

Take a look at the possible filesystem types.

I will note that someone may have done this but implementing a kernel like this will leave you in the land of no support.
