Subjectcdrecord from ext3
Hi all,

I have found a strange problem using cdrecord from an ext3 partition.
When burning a cd image (about 500Mb), with cdrecord -v to see some info,
after about 150Mb the percentage of fifo filled begins to drop, until the
burning fails. I though it was related to some buffer/cache issue, but
then I just copied the image to an ext2 partition (so the cache still
filled more, just reaching my ram size), and burnt perfect from the
ext2 partition.

So it looks like ext3 can not give a sustained read rate (not so much,
burning was at 8x). Fifo from ext2 never dropped below 99%.

Is this a bug or the answer is just 'never toast from a journaled fs' ?
