Can't mount reiserfs partition?!

I have recently install FC8, after running Ubuntu for about 2 years, I was having some issues with Ubuntu and my new computer so I decided to try a different distro, figured Fedora would be a good place to start. Everything installed perfectly (even though the live CD didn't boot?!) The only problem I am currently face with is that I can't mount one of my partitions. It the reiserfs partition that Ubuntu is installed on. It has most of my music and stuff on it, and it's boring to work with out music! I get and error mount: operation not supported. Any ideas? I googled and found people had this issue with FC4 and so forth, but I would of hoped this problem would of been resolved! Thanks for any help!

mount -t reiserfs /dev/sda?
NOTE: you need to replace the ? with the right device number

Oddly, I can do it from a terminal, but gnome wouldn't do it for me? It mounted all my other partitions just fine?! Ah well whatever. Thanks

Try disabaling SELinux, from what I understand reiserfs and SElinux do not get along. It may only be for a boot partition, but I know reiserfs and SElinux are incompatible on some level.

Also are you logged in as root? If not, when you do it through terminal you get root access, but through the gui you don't. That could be your problem also.

Two things: check you have the reiserfs-tools package, and to avoid the annoyance, mount reiserfs partitions from fstab. I have two reiserfs partitions, and since Fedora Core 6, they are neglected upon first boot. Subsequent boots are just fine, though.
If ain't broken, don't fix it! :eek:
If can be improved, go for it! :cool:
