Sorry for flooding the list this week. I've taken the week off from work

Sad, isn't it!

I came across ppckernel.org and noted that the latest build of Debian's
2.4 kernel for PPC is 2.4.13-pre1, which is a modified version of the
main BK (BitKeeper) tree. Is this a recommended version to use for
Reiser, or should I use a stable BenH kernel?

Are there issues with making Reiser filesystems on Debian PPC? It would
be useful to have /var, /tmp and /home on Reiser to help recover from
those battery power outages!


If you carefully study the FAQ on www.namesys.com, you'll see that
Reiserfs has only been tested on x86 and Alpha. So there are quite
probably a number of endianess issues at the least with the code.

Jeff Merkey has been providing endianness patches for a long time, and
they have been merged into 2.4 recently.

I don't think the problems I and others have experienced with ReiserFS
are architecture specific.

s/Jeff\ Merkey/Jeff\ Mahoney/, no ?
