Description Boris Folgmann 2003-04-05 01:52:41 EST
Description of problem:
It's not possible to mount partitions formatted with reiserfs by using their label.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkreiserfs -l /home /dev/hda5
2. mount LABEL=/home /home/
Actual results:
mount: Keine passende Partition gefunden
[en: partition not found]

Expected results:
Mount the reiserfs filesystem.

Additional info:
"mount /dev/hda5 /home/" works
Mounting ext3 filesystems by using their label works.

If this is not supported right now, please add it. Thanks.

reiserfs is not supported
Comment 2 Boris Folgmann 2003-08-01 12:51:44 EDT
You should really support it. XFS and JFS are not stable enough right now, and
ext3 is a lot slower, e.g. for IMAP or news servers, because you have so much
small files that ext3 handles not that good. reiserfs is mucht bette in doing that.
