    Hi!

    Is it possible that you might have forgotten the filesystem support when you compiled that new kernel?

    Good luck

    Hello,

    According to this, you have to get a 'supermount patch' for the 2.6 kernel. Whatever that means. Maybe it'll help you out, though:

    http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-us.../msg09934.html

    Here's another reference to your problem, with the same solution:

    And if that fails, here's another million or so:

    Good Luck,

    Hi @ all

    can someone send the 2.6.9 patch from http://warder.ath.cx:81/projects.php to "cybers19 at gmx.net".

    I do not have access to the 81 port, because the company in wich i am working is blocking this port.

    THX!
