installing reiserfs into fedora

We are running Fedora Core 9 on one of our systems, and the question was asked if it is possible to install the reiserfs filesystem. If so, what is the name of the package? Thanks.

I don't think Fedora supports reiserfs, I have just installed GParted, and it will format ext2, ext3, fat16, fat32, linux swap and ntfs.
Reisefs is in there but not highlighted, maybe it needs a kernel module to make it work.

indeed - the kernel support is a prerequisite to using it - as well as the tools to create, manipulate, check reiserfs.
they state:
You cannot use SELinux on ReiserFS or JFS
I don't know why.

Well reiserfs is enabled in the fedora kernel. You have to install the utilities if you want to create one.

yum install reiserfsprogs
If it isn't reiserfsprogs then it is reiserfsutils. Note that fedora does not support reiser4 though.

  dnf install reiserfs-utils
