Hi all,

I'm starting an install of Gentoo on a G3 800Mhz iBook. I've partitioned my drive...and trying to do mkreiserfs on my linux partion, but, it gives me this error:

mkreiserfs /dev/hda4

mkreiserfs: Guessing about desired format..
mkreiserfs: Kernel 2.6.5-gentoo-G4 is running.
mkreiserfs: You should run either 2.4 or 2.2 to be able to create reiserfs filesystem of specify desired format with -v

When I booted I did with these parameters G3 video=radeofb:1024x768, so I would think I'd be in G3 kernel, not G4....

Any ideas on this?

Thanx in advance,

cayenne

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
:-)

EDIT: Ok, I found how to solve this...just had to put the version of reiser I wanted to use like:

mkreiserfs --format 3.6 /dev/hda4

It worked just fine. Never seen this on an x86 install....might be nice to add to the install documentation.
