View Full Version : knoppix-installer and reiserfs ?

Hi !

Is there an easy way to make the knoppix-installer use reiserfs for the root partition. I can partition the root as reiserfs, but the knoppix-installer will always reformat it with ext3. I managed to get reiserfs on the root-partition by editing the installer-script, but is there an easier way ?

yes, there is an easy way to change it to reiserfs.

Start knoppix-installer as usual. Fill in the first options, "Configure Installation"

Then go to "Save config" enter a file name, for example, "/save". This will create a text file with the configurations so you can edit later.

Quit the installer.

Use your favorite editor to edit that file.

sudo vi /save

The file is well documented. There is a place where you can change "ext3" to "reiserfs".

Start knoppix-installer again and load the saved file.
