Most of the documentation is a snapshot of the old Namesys site (, 2007-09-29).

There was also a Reiser4 Wiki (, 2007-07-06) once on

Reiser4 development appears to have stalled and ReiserFS is deprecated and scheduled to be removed from mainline Linux in 2025.

Debug Reiser4progs with GDB

1. Make sure you have the latest version of Reiser4progs:

   $ git clone

2. Compile and build static binaries with debugging symbols:

   $ cd reiser4progs
   $ ./prepare
   $ ./configure --enable-debug --enable-full-static
   $ make

Troubleshooting. If you use Fedora distro, then make command can fail with the following:

    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -luuid" during compilation

Possible solution:

   $ cd /usr/lib64
   $ sudo mv libuuid.so_
   $ sudo ln -s

3. Run gdb against needed binary that can be found in ./progs directory. For example:

   $ gdb progs/fsck/fsck.reiser4
