Trying to get 2.2.19+3dfx+reiserfs
I have a StarMax 4000 (PMac 4400-like) with a coupla MacOS SCSI
drives, a dedicated 30GB IDE for linux, and a 3dfx video card. The
onboard ATI graphics are fubared due to some partially fried VRAM.
I am a PowerPC Debian newbie, but have used Macs since the SE and
have installed Debian on an Athlon-ATA100-Nvidia-digital
So, since my Mac was aging, I thought I'd switch it over to Linux and
see if I can get some extra functionality out of it. What I would
like to get is a kernel that can do 3dfx console and some sort of
journaling file system.
I have tried 2.2.19 + 3dfx (works!) + reiserfs (doesn't!)
linux-2.4-paulus (3dfx doesn't, can't see if reiserfs does or not)
linux-2.4-benh (same problem as paulus)
For the 2.2.19, the reiserfs patch applied without any problems. I
recompiled the kernel with reiserfs support. Installed from source
the reiserfsprogs-3.0.j-esafe. Made a reiserfs partition.
to /etc/fstab, I added:
/dev/hda5 /reiser reiserfs default 0 2
mount -a returned that no valid reiserfs was found. Tried:
mount -t reiserfs /dev/hda5 /reiser
and got the same problem.
Is there anyway to tell if reiser was compiled into the kernel? cat /proc/???
