Welcome to the Reiser4 Wiki, the Wiki for users and developers of the ReiserFS and Reiser4 filesystems.

For now, most of the documentation is just a snapshot of the old Namesys site (archive.org, 2007-09-29).

There was also a Reiser4 Wiki (archive.org, 2007-07-06) once on pub.namesys.com.

The tools to maintain a Reiser4 filesystem are called reiser4progs and can be found on Sourceforge. If your distribution does not ship a pre-compiled package, we have to build this manually.

To compile reiser4progs, we'll need libaal too:

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/reiser4/reiser4-utils/libaal/libaal-1.0.6.tar.gz
tar -xzf libaal-1.0.6.tar.gz
cd libaal-1.0.6
./configure --prefix=/opt/libaal
make && sudo make install

cd /opt/libaal && ln -s lib64 lib       # For 64 bit systems!

Now we can build reiser4progs:

sudo apt-get install libreadline-dev uuid-dev                            # Debian, Ubuntu
sudo     yum install readline-devel  libuuid-devel glibc-devel-static    # openSUSE, Fedora

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/reiser4/reiser4-utils/reiser4progs/reiser4progs-1.1.0.tar.gz
tar -xzf reiser4progs-1.1.0.tar.gz
cd reiser4progs-1.1.0
./configure --prefix=/opt/reiser4progs --with-libaal=/opt/libaal
make && sudo make install

Note: if libaal has been installed from a distribution package (libaal-dev resp. libaal-devel), the --with-libaal flag can be omitted!
