 => Q: Mounting the XFS filesystem does not work - what is wrong?

 =>    If you get something like:
 =>     mount: /dev/hda5 has wrong major or minor number
 => 
 => you either don't have XFS compiled into the kernel (or you
 => forgot to load the modules) or you did not use the "-t xfs"
 => option on mount or the "xfs" option in /etc/fstab.
 => 
 => My question is if I can use XFS without rebooting, only building
 => the module, or I also need to make bzImage ?

Kernel changes are required to support XFS. You need to rebuild the
kernel even if you are using XFS as a module.
