Description of problem:
JFS is totally missing from both kernel and kernel-unsupported, for the 2.6.0
This prevents a system with JFS partitions from accessing those partitions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Ideally, find a system with JFS partitions on it.
1. Install the 2.6 kernel-unsupported and kernel RPMs.
2. Reboot into the new kernel.
Actual Results: Notice lack of JFS support; notice that you can't get to your
data (if you have JFS partitions around). If your root partition is JFS, notice
that your system no longer boots ;)
Expected Results: JFS should be present and working.
# CONFIG_JFS_FS is not set
in all of the configs in /usr/src/linux-2.6.0-0.test7.1.52/configs
I might try patching the kernel SRPM (and then attaching such a patch to this
Created attachment 95124 [details]
patch to change kernel configs to add JFS support
These config files configure JFS just as it is configured in 2.4.21-3.EL. It's
compiling now as I type this. Once that finishes I'll test the i686 package to
make sure it works. I'm using a single 1.4GHz Pentium III for the compile so it
might take a while...
It compiles and it works...
It seems fixed to me in both fc-devel and
people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.5, so I'm marking the bug as resolved.
