Re: Subject: defragfs



ok. so it looks like your using a  jfs tool on a NON jfs filesystem. 
so no luck with that!!! 
No.. from what i do know.. redhat / linux with ext3 fs do not do 
defrags the way your thinking of.. I do know that the kernel/ext3 mods 
do cool things to keep the fs from getting fragmented..!! while writing 
data to the drive...dont have my book handy to tell you just what it
does.. but will post it 
when i find it.. 
 
if you can.. try the tar and format your partion again and untar your
stuff 
and do a fsck to see how much is discontiguous.. 
 
or even just copy the data from one partion to another.. 
cp -r -p /source  /temp 
mkfs.ext3 /dev/hda?? 
mount /source 
cp -r -p /temp /source
