cannot understand some dmesg output
 
Hi

I have slackware installed on reiserfs. I am posting the output of dmesg

Some of the lines I do not understand. Please can any one explain


FAT: bogus logical sector size 0
UMSDOS: msdos_read_super failed, mount aborted.
FAT: bogus logical sector size 0
FAT: bogus logical sector size 0

reiserfs: found format "3.6" with standard journal
reiserfs: checking transaction log (device ide0(3,8)) ...
for (ide0(3,8))
ide0(3,8):Using r5 hash to sort names
VFS: Mounted root (reiserfs filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 116k freed
Adding Swap: 136512k swap-space (priority -1)
reiserfs: found format "3.6" with standard journal
reiserfs: checking transaction log (device ide0(3,6)) ...
for (ide0(3,6))
ide0(3,6):Using r5 hash to sort names

I am also trying to install LFS. 2/3 days back I started on this project by creating the relevant partitions etc.

When I logged in after 2 days my partition /dev/hda10 was corrupted and cfdisk refused to open. I had to delete the partition and recreate the partition again.

What is the linux equivalent of format mkfs I believe

Also is the following command correct

mkfs.ext3 /dev/hda10 or some additional arguments are needed


Thanks

For make a ext filesystem, try: man mke2fs (this command is used for ext2 and 3)
and for generally making filesystems: man mkfs

Translation:

"You have no FAT partitions. Have a nice day."

No problem.

Hi

I have a fat partition which has win 98 on it which is /dev/hda1.

Is this not identified during boot process

Thanks

It doesn't look like it. Maybe I'm just missing something. Is that partition listed in /etc/fstab? Do you have any trouble accessing it?

ninadb 09-27-2004 11:30 PM

Hi

yes it is mounted during booting and I can access it

is there any problem like bad sector etc


Thanks and regards
Ninad

I don't think so. I used to get that message all the time. Don't remember what I did to disable it, but there were never any issues.

You get that message because you have UMSDOS support built in by your kernel. Nothings is wrong with your win98 partition, this uses the vfat filesystem.

To get rid of the boot message you have to recompile your kernel and disable the option UMSDOS. I think you only need this if you want to run Linux from within a DOS partition (I might be wrong here...).

Better just ignore it and have a happy life ;-)

Cheers, Leon.

:study:I believe I read somewhere that UMSDOS actually stands for "Under MSDOS." Can anyone corroborate this, or am I telling tales out of school?

Never mind--forgot I was browsing the archives and not reading new postings!:rolleyes:
