Ok this is a fresh install on a brand new pc. I d/l the 0.6 beta iso since the system doesn't have a floppy drive and since the new kernel name change ftp install of the .5 iso won't work. Anyways after install of just base packages I get this odd message when it hits the "Checking Filesystems" section of the boot. This happens right after it mounts rot as read only.
Exaqct message is:
fsck: cannot check /dec/discs/disc0/part4: fsck.reiserfs not found..
I have tried uninstalling reiserfsprogs package and reinstalling it but that still doesn't fix the issue. I am not quite sure what the issue is. This is the first time I have ever come across this issue. Any help or advice twards fixing this would be great..
If you set up your fstab to check filesystems on boot (the last parameter in a line in fstab) then fsck is called during boot. fsck then calls the appropriate fsck for the filesystem fsck.[your-filesystem], in your case that is fsck.reiserfs. I don't know why but the program in reiserfsprogs is named reiserfsck (at least in arch linux), that's why fsck cannot find it.
You could create a symlink to reiserfsck called fsck.reiserfs, but I am not sure if these are really the same programs with just different names or they really differ. If someone knows more, please explain, I'm also interested in this.
You don't need to run fsck at boot for Reiserfs.
