I installed xfs on a Pentium Pro with a Promise TX-133 IDE
controller, Slackware 8.0 and kernel 2.4.17-xfs. Then I
made a xfs partition on a 80Gb IDE HD. It worked just fine.

Now I have an Alpha W/S with Redhat 7.1, the same IDE
controller and the same kernel version.
But now when I try to mount the xfs-partition it says:

XFS: Trying to mount file system with 4096 bytes
XFS: Only page-sized (8192 bytes) blocksize currently works
XFS: SB validate failed

so... what is my problem and how do I solve it ???

You can't exchange the disks between machines that have different page sizes.

Alpha has a 8K pagesize while Intel has 4K.
There is work in progress to mount disks with a blocksize smaller then pagesize.


This would also mean that if a disk has been formatted on a alpha with 8K pagesize and intel box can not mount it. However mounting a disk with a blocksize larger then pagesize is currently not possible.

This is explained in the FAQ as well.
