Im using ext2 - Why does it want reiserfs?


When I boot linux off LILO, i get an error because Im not using reiserfs.
Im using slackware 10.0

How do i tell it that im using ext2?
Or MUST i use reiserfs?

Thanks alot.

i dont know how to tell it you use ext2, but reiserfs is much much better than ext2. its also a lot faster, defragrments less and gets corrupted less. even if you can figure this out, id recommend using reiser anyway.

You may like to check your /etc/fstab and make sure it has the right filesystem for the root partition.
