Maybe XFS truly is cursed

Bugs, bugs everywhere: for those of you — like me! — running XFS as your root in Fedora because you never got around to changing it, if Petitboot doesn't get you then the kernel will. Linux 6.3 apparently has one line of code missing in the XFS component which can corrupt metadata (thank goodness I'm on 6.2). The updated kernel is on its way to the Fedora testing repositories and should turn up as a 6.3 point release. I guess today is a good day to die go ext4 or something.


  1. I'm getting really curious about how Chimera's coming along - much as I enjoy some of the benefits of Fedora's relentless advance, sometimes stuff like this comes along and pees in the pool.
