    VFS:Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev dm-0


    Hi:
    ON centos5.0,I have comipled 2.6.28.7 kernel with reiserfs supported.
    and then formated original /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 on "/" with reiserfs filesystem.
    when I boot centos5.0.reported:
    Volume group VolGroup00 found ...........

    VFS:Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev dm-0
    mount:error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3:invalid argument.
    setuproot:error mounting /proc:no such file or directory
    setuproot:error mount /sys:no such file or directory.
    switchroot:mount failed:no such file or directory.

    this is my /etc/fstab
    /dev/Vg0/LogVol01 / reiserfs 1 1
    LABEL=/boot1 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    LABEL=SWAP-sda9 swap swap defaults 0 0

    Hi and Welcome !

    /dev/Vg0/LogVol01 / ext3 reiserfs 1 1
    You have formatted volume in Reiserfs filesystem. Remove ext3 from /etc/fstab file.
    Code:
    /dev/Vg0/LogVol01 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Is it still throwing same error? Its trying to mount ext3 filesystem only. Something is wrong in /etc/fstab file.

    After I compile kernel with reiserfs as (M). I backup my
    /dev/Vg01/VolGroup00(/) and then I have formated /dev/Vg01/VolGroup00(/) as reiserfs and vim /etc/fstab:
    change "/" mount as reiserfs. I restore back my "/" and reboot
    .but reported the fault.
