There are a few reasons why GFS1 is not in Fedora anylonger.
The first and most important one:
Fedora does not allow external kernel modules anylonger. GFS1 will never
In order to run GFS1, a patch to the main kernel is required, and this
patch will never be included upstream either. That makes it basically
impossible for us to maintain a separate rpm repository to provide GFS1
without duplicating a lot of work in maintain an external kernel.
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.
