Compiling a kernel on a Reiser FS system
Posted on 2001-08-20
here is the problem. Depending on its feasability I will increase the points...
I have SuSE 7.2 Professional running on my PC. Since I want to use VMWare I have to recompile my kernel since the necessary include files are not on the machine.
So I decided to compile my 2.4.4 kernel which works fine. I copied the bzImage to /boot and aded an entry to Lilo.
As soon as I start my new kernel it works for a while until the machine tries to mount the root file system which is Reiser FS. The the booting fails: "Can't mount root file system" or something like that is the error message I get.
During the kernel configuration I found something with Reiser FS in the File System section but it was disabled so I could not choose anything there.
Someone knows what I will have to do to get the kernel running?
