Hey, I have a little comment to the handbook: It states that if one doesn't use
ext2 or ext3 when using genkernel, the filesystem you use should be activated
manually by using menuconfig, but when I ran genkernel with menuconfig all, my
filesystem (reiserfs) was already selected.
Am I wrong or should the list of which filesystems supported per default not
also include reiserfs?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=1&chap=7
and read the second paragraph after code listing 19
I found out I did not need to use menuconfig all, which was a bit confusing as I
was told I had to use menuconfig all.

00:30:40 < bitnissen> ok
00:31:53 <@fox2mike> bitnissen: grep -i "reiser" kernel-config-2.6
00:32:24 < bitnissen> uhh, hm, lemme see, gotta write it over :-/
00:32:33 < bitnissen> CONFIG_REISERFS_FS=y
00:32:44 < bitnissen> CONFIG_REISERFS_FS_XATTR=y
Seems genkernel now has reiserfs support be default. So we need to update the
We do say "might"... better to double check any way, we don't control what file
systems are active by default by genkernel.
