I've made that mistake before.

Under File Systems, just compile reiserfs into the kernel rather than as a module. You are close, providing this is the last problem. It should be though, hopefully. It's probably a good idea to compile, as modules, filesystems like vfat and ext2... just in case you come across a floppy disk or a flash drive or digital camera, etc... And just make sure you have (at least) the ISO 9660 filesystem so you can use your CD-ROM. I also throw in that UDF filesystem for good measure. If they're already in there then by all means let them be. These are mistakes I've made before.

Also... if you do any kind of home networking at all, look into compiling support for samba filesystem and cifs... as modules of course. That really depends on what you use, though. The only filesystems you really need in the kernel are the filesystems your bootup stuff are on.

A bit drastic, don't you think?

Either way... what's done is done. Just make sure that's in the kernel instead of reiserfs.

You don't need to know why, just know that it is a fact of life. Slackware is my opium. I've been itching to try some other appealing distros but I just can't do it. There's no reason to do it. I'm very happy with Slackware.

Truth is you're probably one of those who loves the pursuit of knowledge and you won't be happy giving up because it doesn't work.

Happy Slacking.
