i recently acquired an external usb hard disk and now i wonder, if there is support for a high performance filesystem (reiser, xfs) for any of the roms? did someone succeed in patching a kernel?

You don't need to patch it in, you simply have to compile a kernel out of OE with xfs-support integrated or compiled as a module.

I considered this some time ago when I was working on Cacko for the SL-C3000, the problem with XFS though is that fsck doesn't always seem to catch file system errors and if you crash you periodicallly need to use the xfs utils to check your file system.

Anyone that has used a Linux desktop with XFS for a considerable period of time will probably share the same opinion that it isn't a great choice for a PDA that may be prone to the occasional freeze.

I would probably only use XFS now, with the experiences that I had, under one of two circumstances..

i. I was running IRIX.

ii. I was running it on a dedicated file server.
