Description of problem:
Previous RH stock kernel builds could boot directly from reiserfs. The latest
rawhide stock kernels cannot.
Error message during boot:
mount: error 19 mounting reiserfs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade RH 9 installed on reiserfs boot partition to rawhide
3. Error occurs
Actual Results: Unable to boot latest rawhide kernel
Expected Results: rawhide kernel should be built with reiserfs support and be
able to boot
This is not a test3 bug judging from the kernel version.
This kernel is *ancient* now, and this problem is probably fixed when we moved
away from using the -unsupported RPM. (Which happened several revisions after
the one you're using).
What I don't understand is that the version you're reporting was not an install
kernel from any of the FC tests.
Yes, this problem is no longer in the latest test kernel. The kernel tested was
the latest available from rawhide before the ftp tree changed from i386/rawhide
I just tested arjanv 2.6 test kernel (126.96.36.199-0.test9.1.67) and the
reiserfs problem is now in this kernel package.
This problem will be fixed when FC2/rawhide gets a 2.6 kernel.
Arjan's 2.6 RPM is unlikely to move this out of unsupported.
