Arrow How To Enable Xfs


HI ALL,
I WANT TO ENABLE XFS SUPPORT IN BY LINUX BOX.

i have tried it running by make menuconfig in
cd /usr/src/kernels/2.6.9-5/
make menuconfig
then select the filesystem as
[M] xfs ..
exit
yes
make
but it gives error as
ERROR: no rule to make target'init/main.o',needed by 'init/built-in.o'. stop
make ***[init] error 2

1) is it necessary that /root must be xfs type ,to use xfs on any other partition.?
2) is their any stander size used by xfs(ie. the size be no less than (partition size))
3) how do i enable xfs support in my kernel (2.6.9-5),pls list in detail.

What distro are you using? It seem that you are doing it right, so there may be something wrong with the source you are using. If you have used this source before trying cleaning it with 'make clean' to remove old files.

The term "distro" is short for "distribution" (e.g. Red Hat, Gentoo, Debian, etc). You appear to be using Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I don't know about the particulars of XFS, but if you're going to use it for your root partition (/), you'll want it compiled into the kernel, rather than as a module.
