mounting reiserfs using label doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-03-27 00:02:47 EDT
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkreiserfs -l /home /dev/hda5
2. mount LABEL=/home /home/
mount: Keine passende Partition gefunden
[en: partition not found]
Mount the reiserfs filesystem.
"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
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.
