ReiserFS gone in CentOS4

Post by bteipel » 2005/03/23 15:55:08

Hi all,

today I`ve found an bugzilla entry the ReiserFS is available in RHEL4 (like FC using "linux reiserfs" as boot prompt) and I'm now wondering what happent to CentOS that ReiserFS support is now missing?

Best regards,
Björn Teipel

ReiserFS gone in CentOS4

First CentOS4/RHEL4 does not deliver a unsupported package like RHEL3 (linux reiserfs). The stock CentOS4/RHEL4 kernel does not support reiserfs because SELINUX needs a filesystem with xattr support.

NOTE: xattr is horrorible borken on reiserfs!



The only offiical supported fs is ext2/ext3. That it !


Cheers
Stephan


p.s you can use XFS (SELINUX ready) but you have to complile a kernel with XFS support.

I would guess.. load the module, make a new ramdisk image, update fstab. (and, of course, have the new root be xfs) but I recommend using a different distro for these filesystems.
