So I finally plucked up the courage to follow Davy Gravy's Lenny instructions here http://forum.buffalo.nas-central.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5736&p=72241&#p72241 on my new 2nd LS Live.

All went very smoothly with the install and I've done a full aptitude upgrade - so far so good.

I planned to switch from the XFS I've been using with Freelink to JFS as its supposed to be faster but I just can't mount the device.

The kernel seems to have the option

Code:
loststation2:/etc# ls /lib/modules/2.6.29.1/kernel/fs/jfs/
jfs.ko


and I can happily format and fsck the device

Code:
loststation2:/etc# mkfs.jfs /dev/sda7
mkfs.jfs version 1.1.12, 24-Aug-2007
Warning!  All data on device /dev/sda7 will be lost!

Continue? (Y/N) y
   \

Format completed successfully.

493034818 kilobytes total disk space.
loststation2:/etc# jfs_fsck /dev/sda7
jfs_fsck version 1.1.12, 24-Aug-2007
processing started: 7/18/2009 13.36.5
Using default parameter: -p
The current device is:  /dev/sda7
Block size in bytes:  4096
Filesystem size in blocks:  123258704
**Phase 0 - Replay Journal Log
Filesystem is clean.
loststation2:/etc#


But it just won't mount.

Code:
loststation2:/etc# mount -o noatime -t jfs /dev/sda7 /mnt/disk1
mount: unknown filesystem type 'jfs'


Any ideas? Am I doing something dumb?

For future noob's like me I found the answer on this.

It needed depmod -a running.

Now jfs and xfs both mount as expected.
