Description Sjoerd Hardeman 2005-08-10 18:20:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; nl-NL; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When installing Fedora trying to use reiserfs, I couln't get it working. After partitioning the system crashed, giving me a bug report I forgot to copy. When rebooting, the partitions were ok, but when trying to install the installer stopped installing the package "filesystems-2.4.3..." or something like that, claiming a lack of space or a faulty install cd (which were both not the case).
Installing worked when I repartitioned the root partition as ext3, leving only /home as reiserfs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Booting install cd using "linux reiserfs"
2.Going trough the install program, making sure the root partition is reiserfs
3.Waiting till the program installs "filesystems-2.4.3...." or something named similar, and see the installer stop.

Actual Results:  The installer stopped, claiming there was no space or the cd's were bad

Expected Results:  It should have continued installing

you may also need selinux=0.

Note that reiserfs is unsupported.

We have a wishlish page which explains other filesystem support as requiring
community participation. You might want to point future bug reports to this page
