User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041002

Description of problem:
I choose: linux reiserfs at the start of install. The anaconda show
then reiserfs as additional filesystem. I choose reiserfs for my / and
/home partitions. Then installer stops at formatting step. I try this
3 times with various options. Then I changet fs type to ext3 and the
installer worked properly. Now I have a FC3test2 system on ext3, while
reiserfs works ok with FC2.
I don't know which component caused this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3test2 installed from official ISOs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install system FC3test2 from ISO with formatting partitions as reiserfs


Actual Results:  Installer stops

Expected Results:  Partitions formatted in reiserfs

Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-08 05:03:05 EDT
For FC3 you *must* also disable selinux for reiser support:

linux reiserfs selinux=0
Note from the src and closing: 

reiserfs is totally, 100% unsupported.  Boot with "linux reiserfs"
at the boot: prompt will let you make new reiserfs filesystems
in the installer.  Bugs filed when you use this will be closed
