Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-03-13 06:18:07 EST
reiserfs isn't supported.....
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2003-03-13 06:18:36 EST
also please use the 2.4.9-e.12 kernel which is the first one with improved
summit support.
Comment 3 Ing. Christoph Pirchl 2003-03-13 06:25:37 EST
Will reiserfs work with kernel 2.4.9-e.12, because i also use Steeleye 
Lifekeeper and they support only 2.4.9-e.8 (2.4.9-e.10 will come). But if 
2.4.9-e.12 is working, i will try it with Lifekeeper 4.2.0
Comment 4 Ing. Christoph Pirchl 2003-03-27 06:18:13 EST
After 2 weeks with no answer from you, i close this bug.
And the support is not that, what i understand under a good
Afte a web support question i also get not really an answer.
Is it so hard, just to say reiserfs will not work with
RHAS 2.1 ?
