Re: [SLE] ReiserFS on 7.2 Text in Ref.Manual

last negative result was with suse 6.4 and kernel 2.2
then i updated to 7.2 with kernel 2.4 and thought to myself
"eh, the raid code has changed _alot_, try again with reiser"
and voila, it worked. even on a production machine (a webserver)
i have no troubles. also, the annoying raid-checks (n case of
a hard-reboot) are now done in the background, while the raid
is active from the very first moment ...... this is great !

i guess it is a combination of the new raid code and jernel 2.4 which
makes all this working now .....

btw, it is really handy to have the magic-sys-req key enabled in the
kernel (and yast) .... can save alot of fsck's and even reboots (by
killing all tasks....)
