I'm new in this mailing list :-)
I have the following problem:
I cannot mount an XFS partition after creation with mkfs.xfs on my ide hdd,
running on a promise ultra100tx2 controller. But XFS works fine on hdc (ls120
atapi floppy) and scsi hdd (sda2)
I'm using SUSE7.1 with 2.4.6 kernel with following patches
patch-2.4.6-xfs-2001-07-05.bz2   # for xfs :-)
ide.2.4.6.all.07042001.patch.bz2  #from linux-ide.org (enable bm dma for the
promise 100tx2 controller)
root ,usr  partitions are on same ide disk (/dev/hde1, /dev/hde6 of type

mkfs.xfs -f  /dev/hde7
# no error message ...
mount -t xfs /dev/hde7 /mnt
#fails with
> mount: wrong fs type, bad option , bad superblock on /dev/hde7,
> or too many mounted filesystems

It seems that /dev/hde7 partition is not altered in any way,
so e.g. it is still possible to mount that partition with the previous formatted
fs type, e.g ext2 or reiserfs.

(all other common fstypes are working fine on that partition)
any comments or suggestions to check?
