Has anyone been able to get XFS running on RHEL4?
I can get it running on RHEL5 by making the kernel module from source. I can create filesystems using mkfs.xfs from xfsprogs, and I can mount them successfully.
But, trying to do the same thing on RHEL4u3 and I can't make the module. I have installed the correct source files for my kernel, I have enabled xfs support (via make xconfig), but I can't make the xfs module. My error is:
[root@mg-rhel4]# cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.8/linux-2.6.9
[root@mg-rhel4]# grep -i XFS .config
# CONFIG_XFS_RT is not set
# CONFIG_XFS_QUOTA is not set
[root@mg-rhel4]# make fs/xfs/xfs.ko
make: *** No rule to make target 'fs/xfs/xfs.ko'. Stop.
I haven't touched the Makefile in fs/xfs. It looks fine to me...
I can install the xfs kernel RPM from CentOS (kernel-module-xfs-2.6.9-34.EL-0.1.1), but that prints a big warning message on install about it being test status. I don't really want to use that...
If anyone has setup XFS on RHEL4, how did you do it?
