    SYNOPSIS

           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 ] [  -B  |  --bad-
           blocks file ]  device [ filesystem-size ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           mkreiserfs  creates  a Linux ReiserFS filesystem on a device (usually a
           disk partition).
    
           device is the special file corresponding to a device or to a  partition
                  (e.g /dev/hdXX for an IDE disk partition or /dev/sdXX for a SCSI
                  disk partition).
    
           filesystem-size
                  is the size in blocks of the filesystem. If omitted,  mkreiserfs
                  will automatically set it.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -b | --block-size N
                  N  is  block  size  in bytes. It may only be set to a power of 2
                  within the 512-8192 interval.
    
           -h | --hash HASH
                  HASH specifies which hash function will sort the  names  in  the
                  directories.  Choose from r5, rupasov, or tea. r5 is the default
                  one.
    
           --format FORMAT
                  FORMAT specifies the format for the new filsystem. Choose format
                  3.5  or  3.6. If none is specified mkreiserfs will create format
                  3.6 if running kernel is 2.4 or higher, and format 3.5 if kernel
                  2.2  is  running,  and will refuse creation under all other ker-
                  nels.
    
           -u | --uuid UUID
                  Sets  the  Universally  Unique  IDentifier  of  the   filesystem
                  to   UUID  (see   also  uuidgen(8)).  The  format  of  the  UUID
                  is  a  series of   hex   digits  separated  by  hypthens,  e.g.:
                  "c1b9d5a2-f162-11cf-9ece-0020afc76f16".    If   the  option   is
                  skipped,  mkreiserfs  will by default generate a new UUID.
    
           -l | --label LABEL
                  Sets  the  volume  label  of  the filesystem. LABEL can at  most
                  be  16  characters  long;  if  it  is longer than 16 characters,
                  mkreiserfs will truncate it.
    
           -q | --quiet
                  Sets mkreiserfs to  work  quietly  without  producing  messages,
                  progress  or  questions.  It  is useful, but only for use by end
                  users, if you run mkreiserfs in a script.
                  device, its size defaults to 8193 and the maximal possible  size
                  is  32749  (for  blocksize  4k).  The minimum size is 513 blocks
                  (whether the journal is on the host or on a separate device).
    
           -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  specified  incor-
                  rectly, it will automatically be adjusted.
    
           -B | --badblocks file
                  File  is  the  file  name  of the file that contains the list of
                  blocks to be marked as bad on the filesystem. This list  can  be
                  created by /sbin/badblocks -b block-size device.
    
           -f     Forces  mkreiserfs to continue even when the device is the whole
                  disk, looks mounted, or is not a block device. If -f  is  speci-
                  fied more than once, it allows the user to avoid asking for con-
                  firmation.
    
           -d     Sets mkreiserfs to print debugging  information  during  mkreis-
                  erfs.
    
           -V     Prints the version and then exits.
