We learned a few tricks since our first reiserfs hack in RedHat
7.0: Now we have been able to add reiserfs support in RedHat 7.1
installation using a single update disk. No need to rebuild the
images, just write the floppy and use it with the original cds.
- RedHat 7.1 ships with lilo 21.4 that doesn't handle ReiserFS
partitions. Therefore you MUST create an EXT2 "/boot" partition or
your system will not boot.
- The 2.4.2 kernel supplied comes with ReiserFS debuging code
enabled. For best performance you should recompile your kernel
- This update disk allows Anaconda to upgrade an existing ReiserFS
system or to install a new one. It will NOT convert EXT2 partitions
By the way, we are not RedHat employees nor have any affiliation
with RedHat. No warranty is provided, use this update disk at your
Thanks to the RedHat Linux team for their great and flexible
