reiserfs


how do i create a reiserfs based files system on a 2.4.2 kernel
will i have to recompile the kernel ?
i need the commands for it .. the present file sys is ext2
will it slow down the system ?

Moved to the software forum

If you are going to use reiserfs you'll need to backup your ext2 fs as a 'mkreiserfs' will format that partition. You may want to look at ext3fs as it allows a migration from ext2 (never tried that myself).

I'm a big fan of reiserfs and it has served me well.

As for the 2.4.2 kernel... you should get at least the 2.4.16 as there were some IDE drive issues with previous kernels.

tune2fs -j /dev/hdx
That's the syntax for journalizing an ext2 partition (ext3).

It won't do Reiser but it'll do ext3 which is arguably just as good (sufficient nonetheless).

Cool

However, I don't know if ext3 was an option with 2.4.2 so you might not have any luck...
I'll check kernel.org and let you know what I find.
Cool

Looks like it should work:
