Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: ReiserFS and the dotLRN/Knoppix CD

Posted by Patrick Giagnocavo on
Most likely the kernel on the Knoppix CD does not understand the ReiserFS filesystem and thus cannot use it. You may be able to load the reiserfs kernel module and restart the setup, but I am not sure. A command like (as the root user) "insmod reiserfs" or something similar might work.

Reiserfs is not as popular as the other filesystems, which is probably why it is not turned on by default.
