Question cramfs mounting error


when trying to mount a cramfs file using the standard way

mount -o loop -t cramfs [image_name] [mount_point]

I receive the following error:

cramfs: unsupported filesystem features

Does anybody have an idea of what goes wrong ?

by the way, here the output on the "file" command on the image file :

Linux Compressed ROM File System data, little endian size 7864320 version #2 [...]

Could it be due to the use of lzma instead of zlib ?

Could be your kernel is compiled without cramfs support.
