My guess is that it is not supported because there are no reiser4 kernel module udebs and therefore there is no reason to support it in partman. The status file will tell you what udebs are available and what their status is. For reiserfs: /var/lib/dpkg/status tells me (after additional installer components have been loaded): # grep "Package.*reiser" /var/lib/dpkg/status Package: mkreiserfs-udeb Package: partman-reiserfs Package: reiserfs-modules-2.6.15-1-486-di The important one is partman-reiserfs, which is priority standard. That takes care of pulling in the other needed udebs. The only really strange thing I see for i386 is that partman-reiserfs depends on reiserfsprogs-udeb, but that does not seem to be available. I'm mystified why that dependency is ignored. Hmmm. /var/log/syslog says: resolver (reiserfsprogs-udeb): package doesn't exist (ignored) Can be explained as it is not listed in /var/cache/anna/Packages.default, and that seems to be because it is excluded in debian-cd... Joey: Should we maybe exclude the reiser4 udebs for debian-cd and instead _not_ exclude reiserfsprogs-udeb? Do you remember why that was excluded in the first place? If it is not needed, should we drop the dependency in partman-reiserfs? reiserfsprogs-udeb contains: -rwxr-xr-x root/root 302476 2004-10-15 13:49:20 ./sbin/reiserfsck -rwxr-xr-x root/root 203436 2004-10-15 13:49:20 ./sbin/debugreiserfs -rwxr-xr-x root/root 149740 2004-10-15 13:49:20 ./sbin/resize_reiserfs AFAICT neither of these are currently used (in partman at least).
