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.
Comment 2 Dave Hawkes 2003-10-29 12:59:41 EST
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
to i386/Fedora.

I just tested arjanv 2.6 test kernel ( and the
reiserfs problem is now in this kernel package.

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2003-11-20 14:22:32 EST
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.
