I'm beginning to use Arch Linux and wanted to explore the AUR repository. Because of this motivation, I learned two things immediately.
- Ext3 can support only 32000 sub-directories. (I ran into cannot create dir error.)
- Ext4 can support up to 64000 sub-directories.
However, after clone the project in tmpfs, I learned there are over 65000 directories in the project! Thus, even with ext4, it will not be able to handle this properly.
What are people's choice when coming to selecting file systems for managing AUR-mirror (with large amount of sub-directories)?
