10-Way Linux File-System Comparison On Linux 3.10

Filed under
Linux

On the latest Linux 3.10 stable kernel we have taken ten common Linux file-systems and generated an interesting performance comparisons. The Linux file-systems being tested in this article include XFS, Btrfs, EXT2, EXT3, EXT4, ReiserFS, Reiser4, JFS, F2FS, and ZFS.

After running tests on the latest Reiser4 patch and then the latest ZFS on Linux support, I expanded the file-system testing roundabout to ten different file-systems on the ThinkPad notebook that was housing a single high-performance Intel SSD. The Intel Core i7 720QM system was running the vanilla Linux 3.10.4 kernel in a stock configuration aside from the patch for Reiser4 and then the ZFS DKMS module. All of the file-system user-space utilities were grabbed from the Ubuntu 13.10 "Saucy" repositories. Each of these file-systems is implemented for the Linux kernel and non FUSE-based file-systems were tested in this article.

LXQt Spin Proposed For Fedora 26

A new spin/flavor has been proposed for Fedora 26, one integrating the LXQt desktop environment. For those late to the party, LXQt is the formation of the LXDE and Razor-qt projects and built around the Qt5 tool-kit. Fedora currently has an LXDE spin while this proposed Fedora LXQt would continue to co-exist alongside the existing LXDE version. Christian Dersch who proposed the LXQt spin explained, "LXDE spin will exist until its maintainer will stop it, LXQt is independent from LXDE spin. So nobody is forced to change ;) Also both projects are maintained upstream so there is no reason to drop anything here." Read more Also: F26 Self Contained Change: LXQt Spin

Raspberry Pi 1 and Zero: Hands on with Manjaro ARM and PiCore Linux

In the previous two posts I wrote about SUSE Linux and Fedora/Manjaro ARM/Ubuntu MATE for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. The results were mixed, at best. This time I'm taking on even more of a challenge because I'm going to be looking at the original Raspberry Pi Model B and B+, and the Raspberry Pi Zero. These models all have much more limited CPU power and memory than the Pi 2 and 3, so it will be interesting to see what can be done with them. Read more
