Description Thomas Schweikle 2009-04-20 14:58:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Kernel 2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10 does not have reiserfs modules somewhere.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10

How reproducible:
Allways

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10 from DVD, have some partition formated with reiserfs
2. mount it.
3. Upgrade to the new kernel 2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10
4. Watch the system not mount the reiserfs formatted partitions
  
Actual results:
Partitions formatted with reiserfs are not mounted

Expected results:
Partitions formatted with reiserfs mounted

Additional info:
Kernels before 2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10 had reiserfs enabled
Comment 1 Itamar Reis Peixoto 2009-04-20 15:31:38 EDT
Can you check if your kernel have or not reiserfs with the flowing command ?

grep REISER /boot/config-*

have you installed reiserfs-utils ?

reiserfs module is loaded ?

modprobe reiserfs ?
Comment 2 Thomas Schweikle 2009-04-20 15:40:17 EDT
I was totaly on the wrong way ...

The filesystem on these partitions is not reiserfs (even if marked as being in
fstab), but ext3. Looks a lot like mount reading fstab for a given partition
and taking what is given as filesystem there (even if I give it device and mountpoint, but no filesystem type):

"mount /dev/vg00/lv00 /mnt" fails with reiserfs superblock not found
"mount -t ext3 /dev/vg00/lv00 /mnt" doesn't fail!

Maybe mount does something wrong?
Comment 3 Itamar Reis Peixoto 2009-04-20 15:46:40 EDT
sounds like ext3, have you take a look in /etc/fstab ?
Comment 4 Thomas Schweikle 2009-04-20 16:42:22 EDT
As I wrote: fstab gives reiserfs, but it is ext3. I could confirm:

fstab:
/dev/sda3   /tmp    reiserfs  defaults  0 0

mount /dev/sda3 /mnt  --> fails: could not find reiserfs superblock
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda3 /mnt --> mounts OK.

this is only with this mount. Maybe it takes what is given in fstab, ignoring what is found inside the partition. I'll take a look at the source then I'll find (or maybe not ...).
Comment 5 Itamar Reis Peixoto 2009-04-20 16:51:14 EDT
change your fstab to ext3, can I close this bug report ?
Comment 6 Thomas Schweikle 2009-04-20 17:37:51 EDT
Yes, just close it. Or maybe better redirect it to mount and set severity to low or medium --- I'll have a close look at what is going on with mount.
