Hi, Kenny!

I am utilizing LVM snapshots, and every once in a while I get this 'you must specify the filesystem type' error when trying to mount the volume:


mount: you must specify the filesystem type


Mount could not mount the FS.



But it only happens once in a while.


So it's probably not an journalled FS (which needs a kernel-patch for online snapshots). What does the system log say? (dmesg, /var/log/messages or whereever)


It's ReiserFS so it's journaled. Only once in a while to I get the error. Var log messages gives this error when I snapshot:

Dec 10 10:57:43 ino kernel: fatfs: bogus logical sector size 0
Dec 10 10:57:43 ino kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid MSDOS filesystem on dev 3a:01.
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: reiserfs: checking transaction log (device 3a:01) ...
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: Using r5 hash to sort names
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: reiserfs: using 3.5.x disk format
Dec 10 10:57:44 ino kernel: ReiserFS version 3.6.25


funny thing tho, it works just fine most of the time.




How can I rid myself of this issue? I am on SuSE Linux 7.2 (2.4.7-64GB-smp) with lvm 0.9.1 beta7.


You may want to upgrade your Kernel and LVM-Tools to 1.0.1... No guarantee that the snapshots will be any better, though.


Yea, I should. thx.
