cant make a reiserfs partition. IMPORTANT!!
I'm trying to install gentoo-linux on my system and made 3 partitions on my hd.
so i started fdisk (fdisk /dev/hde) and created 3 primary partitions.
first should be ext3-fs
second is swap
third should be reiserfs.
here's what i did after creating the partitions with fdisk:
mk2fs -j /dev/hde1
after that nothing has changed. so i started fdisk again and changed the fs
/dev/hde1 and /dev/hde2 had changed to ext3 and swap after that but /dev/hde3 is still ext2. even if i mounted them all. :cry:
what did i do wrong??
please help cuz i need linux urgent
thx in advance!!
Re: cant make a reiserfs partition. IMPORTANT!!
Where did you get that data (ie. that hde1 is ext3, hde2 is swap and hde3 is ext2)? If you mount hde3 and check /proc/mounts, what does it report that it is?
