This patch provides native IBM JFS and SGI XFS file systems support for the GNU GRUB. It seems to be stable. Patch divided into two files: grub-jfs+xfs-1.0-core and grub-jfs+xfs-1.0-build. You can use just the first (and run automake/autoconf) or both (and no automake).

Last version 1.0 is against grub-0.90.

XFS notes

Supports only version 4 of file system and version 2 of directory layout (I guess that's enough for x86 Linux XFS).

GRUB-0.91 was released yesterday with these patches integrated. That's all.
October 28, 2001
All this stuff is in GRUB CVS now and will hopefully be in GRUB 0.91. It means that this site is closed. All fixes/updates to code will go to the GRUB maintainers.
Thank you.
