    Reiserfs and kernel compilation

    I installed Knoppix on my hdd. I chose reiserfs. I need to recompile kernel in order to make it work with ALi 15x3 chipset and USB 2.0. After compilation and installation of the kernel it cannot boot because it cannot use reiserfs root partition. Is there any way to make properly working initrd on Knoppix?

    Here is my kerenel compilation procedure:

    1. su root
    2. apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.20
    3. cd /usr/src
    4. tar --bzip2 -xvf kernel-source-2.4.20.tar.bz2
    5. ln -s kernel-source-2.4.20 linux
    6. patch -p0 < patches/alim15x3.patch
    7. cd linux
    8. patch -p1 < ../patches/usb-ehci-2.4.20-pre11.patch
    9. make xconfig
    10. make-kpkg clean
    11. make-kpkg --append_to_version -crusoe --initrd --revision=01 \
    kernel_image modules_image
    12. cd ..
    13. dpkg -i kernel-image*.deb
    14. Adding new kernel entry to lilo.conf
    15. lilo

    Just compile reiserfs support into the kernel, not as a module,
    and don't use initrd. That's how I do things when I compile
    my custom kernels under other distributions...
