Hello Oleg, hello Trond, hello Alan,

I have several reiserfs fs in use on this server. boot.msg looks like

<4>reiserfs: checking transaction log (device 08:03) ...
<4>Using r5 hash to sort names
<4>ReiserFS version 3.6.25
<4>VFS: Mounted root (reiserfs filesystem) readonly.
<4>Freeing unused kernel memory: 224k freed
<6>Adding Swap: 265032k swap-space (priority 42)
<4>reiserfs: checking transaction log (device 21:01) ...
<4>Using r5 hash to sort names
<4>ReiserFS version 3.6.25
<4>reiserfs: checking transaction log (device 22:01) ...
<4>Using tea hash to sort names
<4>reiserfs: using 3.5.x disk format
<4>ReiserFS version 3.6.25
<4>reiserfs: checking transaction log (device 08:04) ...
<4>Using r5 hash to sort names
<4>ReiserFS version 3.6.25

I tried to find out which device has which numbers and did a cat /proc/devices:

Block devices:
2 fd
8 sd
11 sr
22 ide1
33 ide2
34 ide3
65 sd
66 sd

Interestingly there is no #21. Shouldn't I see a block device 21 here?
More strange the only two existing ide-drives in this system are located on
ide2 and ide3 and should therefore have device numbers 33 and 34, or not?
There is no hd on ide1, only a CDROM (not used during the test). ide0 is
completely empty.
As told earlier this is kernel 2.4.19-pre2.

Enlighten me, please...
