Anyone got it working? Anone got any PPC info on this? I patched my gentoo-dev-sources but still can't mount reiser4 partitions. I was going to start by making my /usr/portage partition reiser4 and seeing if it's stable.

I tried several kernels, and multiple reiser4progs, to no avail.

Too bad, as I'm REALLY jonesing to use reiser4!

I don't see Reiser4 working stable on PPC ever. Reiser3 still has problems with PPC and x86 machines. I recommend trying it out on x86.

I must be lucky because I have been using Reiser3 on my "/" for about a year now without any problems that I can say for sure came from using it. Have you had any problems or know of any that you can refer me to?

Well, I had mad problems with reiser 3 but that was years ago, and I may have been using the particular 2.4 kernel that had all sorts of issues with reiser. Switching to ext3 fixed all sorts of portage issues. Again, this was some time ago.

On my iBook I have Reiser3 running right now. Most of the time when I reboot it can't unmount the drive normally. I also had some data corruption after a hard crash when I was trying to get kismet working. That's about it with me. I've heard other people complaining about reiser and ppc. Hell even reiser and x86. But I'm still using it. I don't do anything important on my box. I might make the switch to xfs later on but that’s going to be on an x86 machine. And the next ppc machine I'm going to get is just going to run OSX.

Sorry I just felt like sharing about my future plans.:D
