No reiserfs kernel-modules with kernel 18.104.22.168-170.2.56.fc10
Last modified: 2009-04-20 18:11:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Kernel 22.214.171.124-170.2.56.fc10 does not have reiserfs modules somewhere.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10 from DVD, have some partition formated with reiserfs
2. mount it.
3. Upgrade to the new kernel 126.96.36.199-170.2.56.fc10
4. Watch the system not mount the reiserfs formatted partitions
Partitions formatted with reiserfs are not mounted
Partitions formatted with reiserfs mounted
Kernels before 188.8.131.52-170.2.56.fc10 had reiserfs enabled
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 ?
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?
sounds like ext3, have you take a look in /etc/fstab ?
As I wrote: fstab gives reiserfs, but it is ext3. I could confirm:
/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 ...).
change your fstab to ext3, can I close this bug report ?
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.
