can't mount fs...      [failed]
Does anyone understand what is it about?

mount: fs type subfs not supported by kernel
Did i forget to check something in xconfig?

Thanks!

MAke sure you have your root filesystems compiled in the kernel, not as a module.

eg if you use ext2/3 or reiser, put it in the kernel...

Thanks for your replies

"enable loadable module support" is enabled in the kernel config and i compiled all the filesystems in the kernel just to make sure. Nothing happened.
I also opened the .config file of my 2.6.4-smp kernel that works fine and use the exact options. Again nothing. I still can't use the dvd and the weird messages at boot remain.

Any other ideas?

I searched the options and there wasn't something such as subfs. I checked everything that was about CD and fs but still the same.

I think there may be something else. After i execute the make bzImage modules, make modules_install and copy the necessary files to /boot, i run mkinitrd and the output is

Code:

Also while mounting windows partitions i get this

mount: fs type vfat not supported by kernel
mount: fs type ntfs not supported by kernel


Do you make something out of this?

Thanks!!

Don't know if this is relevant or not, but if you were running a 2.4 kernel, the modules seem to have undergone a large change. Instead of .o they seem to be .ko and aren't loading with modprobe. Now I get to go check my logs and some other info to see if I can figure out how to load modules again.

(With a 2.6.x kernel)
File systems --->
Pseudo Filesystems --->[*] /proc file system support[*] /dev file system support (OBSOLETE)[*] Automatically mount at boot[*] Virtual memory file system support (former shm fs) hope this helps

I was running the kernel 2.6.4-smp which was precompiled by Suse and running fine. It was in rpm format.
I'll try what comprookie2000 proposed and post back.

Thanks!

hi

for how much do u need to stick to 2.4
2.6 is no dangerous thing here
u need to shift to 2.6 for condrable improvements!!

u can have a 2.4 kernel as a backup though untill u are totally on 2.6

regards

2.6 kernels are way better and faster. 2.6.7 is quite stable. so is 2.6.8.1 and the 2.6.9 snaps, but some apps (like k3b and dvd-tools) need to catch up with the post 2.6.8 kernels.

You have to download and install subfs module separately. This is not included in 2.6 vanilla kernels.
