Kernel Crash when mounting ReiserFS partition created in Debian [[@__list_add]] [[@ pdflush]]
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
rpm -q kernel
When loading a clean 2200 kernel, the system hangs during the graphical boot
near "Starting Network" (or similar, can't remember exact label). If I kill the
X server, I see the bottom half of a panic.
IP was sync_super. It was primarilally unreadable. Installing kdump now, wanted
to submit the report pre-reboot.
if you boot with vga=1 you should get more lines of text on the screen, so
should be able to capture a whole trace.
(Attaching a photo of the screen is ok btw if you have a camera and want to save
a bunch of typing).

Image of crash
I am sorry about the terrible quality of the photo -- wouldn't work without the
flash, wouldn't work with the flash... :)
There was more of the oops before that, and I swear that there was a panic
rather than just the oops, etc...
A possible thought: /home never correctly mounts on my current kernel (2054),
unless I _manually_ do a mount /home. /home is a reiserfs partition that was
created under my previous Debian install.
I am pulling the mount line from fstab and checking it out.
So, that did it. Removing the automatic mount line allowed me to get into the
system. Manually mounting the partition when booted is fine -- no oops, no
panic, no nothin'!
hmm, as thought the top of the oops is missing. Can you try booting with vga=1
Maybe add a 'sleep 60' or the like in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit too after the mount
command at 594 to make it easier to capture the screen without the follow-on noise.
vga=1 changed the text style for a moment, but then went back to the pictured text.
Adding that sleep, will report back later today :)
OK, 3 pictures inbound which are completely terrible due to my camera...
probably completely impossible to read. I can install kdump if someone gives me
a quick howto on the topic. Tried one I found in a bug about documentation,

unfortunatly the FC5 kdump stuff is incomplete so that isn't really an option here.
And yes, those pics were impossible to read :-)
Hmm. Not sure what else to suggest here. I'll take a look through the post .18
commits upstream and see if there's any obvious reiserfs fixes, though I don't
recall seeing anything recently.
The crash is fixed in newer kernels; not sure about the failure to mount via
fstab, with manual mounts succeeding. Looks like a known deficiency in
reiserfs, pls see the other bug.
