Description Barry K. Nathan 2003-10-12 15:32:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030630

Description of problem:
JFS is totally missing from both kernel and kernel-unsupported, for the 2.6.0
test RPMs.

This prevents a system with JFS partitions from accessing those partitions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.0-0.test7.1.52, kernel-unsupported-2.6.0-0.test7.1.52

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

# 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
bug report).

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...
Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2003-10-13 02:31:41 EDT
It compiles and it works...
Comment 3 Barry K. Nathan 2004-03-06 22:11:08 EST
It seems fixed to me in both fc-devel and
people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.5, so I'm marking the bug as resolved.
