ReiserFS 3.6 SegFault on mount attempt
Hi all,

Knoppix Live CD 5.0 (the latest downloaded few minutes ago)
reiserfsprogs 3.6.19-2
kernel 2.6.17

have following problem:

disk with reiserfs get corrupted, partition table was lost. I have created new partition (working on "dd" image on the new disk) and run

fsck.reiserfs --rebuild-sb /dev/hdb4
fsck.reiserfs --check
fsck.reiserfs --rebuild-tree --scan-whole-partition /dev/hdb4

after that the partition seems to be OK (fsck.reiserfs --check shows no corruption) (and during semantic test I can see the filenames ....)

When I try to mount the partition I got following results:

mount /dev/hdb4 /rescue
You must specify filesystem type (or something like that)

mount /dev/hdb4 -t reiserfs /rescue
Segmantation Fault

(with following error in dmesg:
ReiserFS: hdb4: found reiserfs format "3.6" with standard journal
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address f8d6a004
printing eip:

another attempt causes the mount process to hang in D+ state

Any idea?

P.S. tried also on Sarge ... same results

will it seg fault if you format as another partition type and mount it?

Problem is in reiserfsprogs?

thanx for the answer.

It seems there is a bug in the latest reiserfsprogs or it is incompatible with the filesystem on the disk

I tried to use older version of Knoppix (4) with reiserfsprogs-3.6.19-1 and it works now - no segfault, mount successfull

However the filesystem seems to be dead - I can see files, but except few all of them are full of thrash ... well, this is how the data can end ...

Thanx again
