I recently installed Slackware 11 with a full install, utilizing the
184.108.40.206 kernel from extra.
If what you are saying is that you installed with the standard kernel then installed the kernel from extras, then you will have to load the module for reiserfs. As the kernel in extras only has ext2 built in to it. Or you could use the one from the kernels directory, that one has reiserfs built in.
Well, what I did was boot with the huge26.s kernel to install. Then when asked which kernel I would want to use I choose from the installation disk this same kernel.
Upon booting the system I noticed there were many things that would not work (mouse, network cards, etc), so I installed from extras the kernel-modules package for this particular kernel I was using and all was well except for the aforementioned HDB problem.
Problem solved.Probably was a corrupted partition table on the second disk.
For the record to anyone having this problem, try running parted (or gparted) and resizing and/or deleting some partition, causing it to rewrite the partition table on the disk. This fixed it for me. Can't be held accountable for any damage though.
And thanks to you snowtigger, who tipped me off to the problem. I am happy now.
