Which filesystems does Ubuntu 7.04 support?

Asked by Bren Smith on 2007-08-16

I'm researching Ubuntu as an OS candidate for a large file server. I know that it will currently support ext3, but wondered whether 7.04 will support XFS, or better yet ext4? If so, will the current server installer allow formatting of drives with either of these two filesystems? Does anyone know what filesystems might be supported in 7.10?

Bren,
     This is the contents of /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/kernel/fs/ from my server, which shows all the kernel modules for the filesystems that Ubunu ships. XFS is supported, ext4 isn't (unsurprising, as it is still experimental):

9p
adfs
affs
afs
autofs
autofs4
befs
bfs
cifs
coda
configfs
dlm
ecryptfs
efs
exportfs
ext2
ext3
fat
freevxfs
fuse
gfs2
hfs
hfsplus
hpfs
isofs
jbd
jffs2
jfs
lockd
