+
+DESCRIPTION:

+
+ATTACHMENTS:
+ftp://ftp.namesys.com/pub/reiser4-for-2.6/
+ftp://ftp.namesys.com/pub/reiser4progs/
+
+PREREQUISITES:
+Uuid must be installed (Included in e2fsprogs)
+libaal
+
+HINT:
+-> Refer to LFS if you haven't had e2fsprogs installed
+    (You need Uuid that comes with it)
+    
+-> Installing Libaal
+        Get the latest libaal from reiser4progs folder
+        Build process:
+        
+        tar zxf libaal-1.x.x.tar.gz
+        cd libaal-*
+        ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install
+        
+-> Installing Reiser4progs
+        Get the latest reiser4progs
+        Bulid process:
+        
+        tar zxf reiser4progs-1.x.x.tar.gz
+        cd reiser4progs-*
+        ./configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/sbin  &&
+        make &&
+        make install
+        
+-> Patching 2.6 Kernel
+        **Assuming you have the latest kernel source**
+        cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.x
+        Get the latest reiser4 patch
+        gunzip -c reiser4-for-2.6* | patch -p1
+        
+        Configure the kernel config with the following addtional features:
+            [Enable] Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers
+            [Enable] Deflate compression algorithm
+            [Disable] Use 4Kb for kernel stacks instead of 8Kb
+            [Enable] Reiser4
+            
+        Build the kernel
+        
+-> Formating a Reiser4 partition
+
+        mkfs.reiser4 /dev/<device> (Replace with proper device/partition)
+        
+        
+-> Mounting a Reiser4 partition
+        mount -t reiser4 /dev/<device> <mounting point>
+        
+        
+That's all! You have the fastest filesystem on your LFS
+        
+        
+FAQ:
+Q: Where to find "Deflate compression algorithm"
+A:     [Cryptographic options]
