       mkreiserfs  [ -dfV ] [ -b | --block-size N ] [ -h | --hash
       HASH ] [ -u | --uuid UUID ] [  -l  |  --label  LABEL  ]  [
       --format FORMAT ] [ -q | --quiet ] [ -j | --journal-device
       FILE ] [ -s | --journal-size N ] [ -o | --journal-offset N
       ]  [ -t | --transaction-max-size N ]  device [ filesystem-
       size ]


       It creates a Linux ReiserFS file system on a device  (usu­
       ally a disk partition).

       device is  the  special  file  corresponding to the device
              (e.g /dev/hdXX for IDE disk partition or  /dev/sdXX
              for SCSI disk partition).

              size  of  filesystem in blocks. If omitted, it will
              be determined by mkreiserfs automatically.


       -b | --block-size N
              N is block size in bytes. 4096 only for now.

       -h | --hash HASH
              HASH specifies the name of hash function file names
              in  directories  will be sorted with. Choose one of
              r5, rupasov, tea. r5 is default

       --format FORMAT
              FORMAT specifies a format new filsystem has  to  be
              of. Choose one of 3.5 and 3.6. If none is specified
              mkreiserfs will create format 3.6 if running kernel
              is 2.4, 3.5 if 2.2 is running, and will refuse cre­
              ation under other kernels.

       -u | --uuid UUID
              Set  the  universally  unique  identifier ( UUID  )
              of  the  filesystem  to UUID (see also uuidgen(8)).
              The  format  of  the  UUID  is  a series   of   hex
              digits    separated   by   hypthens,   like   this:
              "c1b9d5a2-f162-11cf-9ece-0020afc76f16".   If    the
              option skipped, mkreiserfs generates a new one.

       -l | --label LABEL
              Set   the  volume  label  of  the filesystem. LABEL
              can be at most 16 characters long; if it is  longer
              than 16 characters, mkreiserfs will truncate it.

       -q | --quiet
              Make mkreiserfs to work quiet without producing any
              message, progress and question.  It  is  useful  if
              be on a separate device - its size defaults to num­
              ber  of  blocks that device has. When journal is to
              be on a host device - its size  defaults  8193  and
              maximal possible value is 32749 (for blocksize 4k).
              Minimun is 513 for both cases.

       -t | --transaction-max-size N
              N is the maximum transaction size parameter for the
              journal.  The  default,  and max possible, value is
              1024 blocks. It should be less than half  the  size
              of the journal. If specifed incorrectly, it will be

       -f     This forces mkreiserfs to continue even  if  device
              is  either whole disk, or looks mounted or is not a
              block device. Specified more than  once  allows  to
              avoid asking for confirmation.

       -d     This  makes  mkreiserfs to print debugging informa­
              tion during mkreiserfs.

       -V     This prints version and exits.


       This version of mkreiserfs  has  been  written  by  Edward
       Shishkin <edward@namesys.com>.


       No  other blocksizes but 4k are available.  Please, report
