I use Arch on my desktop and am always tinkering with it. I use a partionless BTRFS setup on hardware which mostly dates back to 2007. Never have an issue. The worst problem I had was a fault in my nvidia drivers and kernel during an upgrade and I easily fixed that with a downgrade till they fixed it.

My pfsense box and my debian nas though, both of those keep having features breaking during upgrades, regularly to the point of needing a fresh install. I don't even do anything fancy on them, they are standard setups with no weird tweaks like on my desktop.

How is it that Arch has such a rep for instability while those other two are supposed to be highly stable, yet nearly all of my maintenance time is spent fixing faults on them? It puzzles and frustrates me.

UKIP are filth.
If you know anyone who lives in Stoke, or anyone with connections to the city, please consider sharing this article with them to help to publicise the disgusting dirty tricks that UKIP are employing to in order to dupe Stokies into voting for their extreme-right Thatcherism on steroids party.

Hi everyone. I haven't yet tried 7.0/7.1 AOSP or CM Optimised but planning to within the next few days. I use NFS at home rather than Samba as it is significantly faster. However, most ROMs use kernels which don't have NFS compiled in and I know this was also the case with the previous versions of the JDC ROMs.

Is it possible to confirm whether the 7.x versions have any NFS support please? If not, I am going to have to see if I can work out how to add it myself. If you have any advice on how to go about that I would really appreciate it please, as it's not something I've done before. Thanks!

Hi there. Really enjoying the ROM, working perfectly. I have a vital need to be able to mount some NFS shares though and I don't believe the relevant module is present in the kernel.

I am considering compiling the kernel to add NFS support. Is it OK to use your kernel source to do this please and is there anything I need to be aware of beforehand? It'll be the first time I've done this for Android but I have plenty of backups and I don't mind a bit of learning through breakage.

+Khy Perryman​ Check this, could be a major back end change if they do decide to go from Windows XP to Linux.
