Description of problem:
Installing Fedora Core 1 on a previously partioned hard drive with
reiserfs root partition.  

Chose to manually partition disk, but did nothing to alter partitions.

When install begins, anaconda crashes with errors relating to disk

I believe that this problem occurs as there is no reiser support in
the installation software.

Repeating the installation, but having previously converted the
reiserfs partition to ext3 resulted in the problem disappearing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a reiserfs partition
2.Install Fedora Core 1 - using reiserfs partition as root


Actual Results:  System crashes trying to access/write to the root

Expected Results:  Install should proceed normally with reiserfs support

We do include the reiserfs stuff for existing (and also there's a
hidden way for new installs).  Can you provide the dump from the crash
you got?
Comment 2 Matthew Richardson 2004-03-04 04:03:49 EST
Unfortunately not - I had to get the machine up and running quickly,
so its now built with ext3 instead :(

Out of interest, could you point me to the 'hidden way' for using
reiserfs, as this will be useful in future...

(As I can't point you to any more useful info on this bug, you can
probably just close this one - if it happens again (I'm building quite
a few systems at the moment) I'll get a proper log for the problem)

'linux reiserfs' although it's not very supported (should work though)
