Re: ext4 and NTFS support?

I'd expect ext4 to work with cachefilesd if ext do. I know it works as a backing store. Using NTFS as a backing store isn't reasonable at present because ntfs-3g doesn't do permission handling in any sane fashion, much less xattrs, so it won't Do The Right Thing(tm). - Rich On Wed, Jun 3, 2009 at 9:26 AM, <Daire.Byrne@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > David, > > Have you tested ext4 with cachefilesd - should it work?
