Hello all. Long time lurker, first time poster.
I have installed Slackware 10 using the xfs.s kernel on a Celeron 300a system and have installed slackpkg 1.3.1 for updating all of my packages from the slackware-current tree.
I am currently using XFS for my filesystem because I am planning on using this machine as a PVR with either MythTV or Freevo.
I've used slackpkg to update all of the packages that are installed on the system. The kernel that is in the slack-current tree is 2.4.28 (I'm updating from the stock 2.4.26 kernel from xfs.s). Once I had completed the upgrades and ran lilo to take the newly updated kernel, I went ahead and tried to reboot into Slack with the 2.4.28 kernel, only to be greeted by a kernel panic saying that it couldn't find reiserfs (it didn't even search for any XFS filesystems).
I then went to the slackware-current tree and noticed that the 2.4.28 kernel located there is an ide kernel which I don't think has support for XFS compiled in.
What I want to know is what do I need to do before updating to 2.4.28 and booting into it so I can have a working 2.4.28 Slackware system with my XFS filesystem? Do I have to create an initrd image?? How would I go about it for XFS support?
I have tried Googling and Yahoo!-ing for solutions and have found nothing. I could really use someone's help.
Thanks in advance.
