Unhappy Increase max inode count


Hi!
Anyone knows how to increase the max inode count handled by the kernel?
I'm using kernel 2.6.13 on Slackware 10.2.

PS. In some older kernels there was a file /proc/sys/fs/inode-max, where one could put the desired max nr of inodes. It's not there on my system, though linux/Documentation/sysctl/fs.txt still lists it.
Didn't try to create the file - i'm quite attached to my partitions and would like to keep them .

On filesystems like ext2/3, the number of inodes is fixed. It cannot be adjusted without recreating the filesystem. If you use a more contemporary filesystem, they don't have the concept of a fixed number of inodes.

What filesystem are you using?

I'm using reiserfs 3.6 - but that's not what I meant. It seems there's a limit on how many inodes the kernel can use at a time ( not how many actually exist on disc). Or maybe it's something else - at least that's what the error I got said: "Too many inodes opened"...
