Where in xconfig is supermount!


I've been using 2.6.3-4mdk kernel allright with supermount support for my dvd / cd recorder. I've downloaded compiled and installed 2.6.5 kernel. But when linux boots i get an error such as : " fs supermount not supported by kernel" . I believe it's somewhere in xconfig and i haven't checked it. BUT I CAN'T FIND IT!! Can anyone hellp me 2 check where exactly supermount support in xconfig is? I am really confused!!

umm no where, as far as i know

supermount is a kernel patch, so for supermount support, you'll needed to get a kernel that supports it, or compile one yourself

Does anybody know from where i get the kernel patch for supermount for my 2.6.5 kernel?

Here is where you'll find it http://supermount-ng.sourceforge.net/
The 2.6.5 kernel is not presently listed, but the most recent one will probably work.

I think i do it with the command " patch -E -p1 <name_of_patch "
When doing this with the latest supermount patch i get a silly error that no patch is in name_of_patch.patch (!!) Why?

After downloading the supermount kernel patch for kernel 2.6.3 9 i have 2.6.5 ) and applied the patch it said it did some things but after i rebooted supermount was NOT enabled . Do i need 2 do something that i haven't done so that the patch will finally work? ( eg do i have to recompile the kernel after applying the patch???)

yes you need to rebuild the kernel
in linux a patch is applied to the source code not the executable so when ever you patch some thing in linux you need to recompile it

Hmmmm. I've applied the 2.6.3 supermount patch and tried to recompile my kernel. Here is what i did

make mrproper
make clean
make xconfig ( Supermount was there and i chose it )
and during make i get this error

CC fs/filesystems.o
CC fs/namespace.o
fs/namespace.c: In function `do_mount':
fs/namespace.c:785: error: `FS_NO_SUBMNT' undeclared (first use in this function)
fs/namespace.c:785: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
fs/namespace.c:785: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [fs/namespace.o] Error 1
make: *** [fs] Error 2

And it stops
(!!!)
Do i need another supermount patch 4 my 2.6.5 kernel?

apparently it doesn't work, try modifying the sources by hand maybe to fix that error?
