Description Rosen Nedialkov 2005-06-16 19:07:40 UTC
Description of problem: Im making an install of fc4 on a 3 reiserfs partitions using Custom and then the Manual partitioning. The partitions were created with the fc3 install long time ago. The is one for /boot, / and /home. The installations finished fine but after rebooting: 1. There is a kernel panic immediately on the system loading: Uncompressing Linux ... OK, booting kernel Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) 2. The grub menu is black and white, not blue !? I installed several times and gave up. Now using ext3 on the same partitions. How reproducible: Always. Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install FC4 on reiserfs partitions 2. After install just login Actual results: Unable to boot into the OS Expected results: To be able to boot :) Additional info: Athlon XP 1700+, GB GA-7VTHE+, 512 RAM. This setup worked perfectly with FC3.

Reiserfs is completely unsupported.
Comment 2 newt goel 2005-08-06 15:37:34 UTC
if you look in the kernel config, reiserfs is compiled as a module. that is probably the problem.

(In reply to comment #2) > if you look in the kernel config, reiserfs is compiled as a module. that is > probably the problem. As I mentioned before the exactly the same setup was working fine on FC3. I'm loading the module before the boot using the "linux reiserfs" command. I had found that if the /boot and/or / partitions are on reiserfs the system wont boot. Now these are on ext3 but the others are still on reiserfs. Could grub had broken something?
