OS X and Linux - Best filesystem for Linux?

Recommended Posts

I would like to install Linux, however there's something holding me back: the filesystem to install Linux onto.

I've been using ext4, however everything I've tried doesn't mount the hard drive at all.

 

What have you OS X/Linux dualbooters used, if I may ask?

Use 3 paritions, 1 for OS X, one for Linux, one for Data. You can easily move your home directory for the OS you use the most to the Data partition and that can be a different file system (e.g. exfat).

Hm, might consider this. Still taking suggestions if anyone wants to suggest anything.
