hi..
Why would ext2 be the default when clearly ext3 which is journaled is obviously the safer route?

thx

Good question.

Are you referring to the pup001 file? -- the original reason for not using ext3 was I understood it to be less space-efficient.

Regading the ramdisk. As this is also the "initrd", that is, the initial ramdisk, I think that has to be ext2.
...that limitation will change soon though, maybe, when puppy2 comes along.

oh ic...well ext3 'may' take more space I honestly dont know but its much safer for storage due to journaling..but anyway if the ramdisk thing was main reason the sure thats understandable...i can always 'make' ext2>ext3 ...i'd rather use reiserfs though..could I EDIT the installer file and change 'ext2' creation to reiserfs maybe ?

thx
