Re: how often to 'fsck -D' ?



Hi All:
I just loaded RH 8.0 for the 1st time.	It's kernel version is 
2.4.18-14.  From simply examining version numbers, I would 
infer that this kernel does NOT include the directory indexing 
feature.  However, I have seen other messages mentioning that 
RedHat will (in some cases) backport code to fix a bug without 
breaking dependancies.	Can anyone confirm one way or the other 
whether a stock RH8.0 kernel contains directory indexing?

Alternatively, is there a means of testing or checking to see 
if it is present?
TIA
A. Becker
