I have been using version 0.7.7.1 for a while and it worked great. Today I decided to upgrade to 0.7.8.
But now my virtual machines don't want to boot anymore. I tried reverting to 0.7.7.1 and everything seems fine again.
With v0.7.8 I get this as the last couple of messages:
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) on device 1:0.
EXT3-fs (hda): error: can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hda.
EXT2-fs (hda): error: can't find an ext2 filesystem on dev hda.
EXT4-fs (hda): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem
ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
List of all partitions:
0300 2097152 hda (driver?)
No filesystem could mount root, tried: ext3 ext2 ext4 iso9660
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,0)
Especially this line is interesting: "No filesystem could mount root, tried: ext3 ext2 ext4 iso9660"
Because I know the filesystem is actually reiserfs.
It seems to me that older versions of colinux had the reiserfs module baked in so it was always available. When I look in the vmlinux-modules.tar.gz for both versions I see a reiserfs module in the one for version 0.7.8 and it's not present in 0.7.7.1.
The question: are my assessments correct? And if so, is the baked in reiserfs module coming back?
And if not, what is the reason it has been made a module instead of baked in?
