       mkreiserfs - create a Linux ReiserFS file system

       mkreiserfs [ -dfV ] [ -b | --block-size N ] [ -h | --hash HASH ] [ -u | --uuid UUID ] [ -l
       | --label LABEL ] [ --format FORMAT ] [ -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 (usually a disk partition).

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

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

       -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 creation 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   sepa-
	      rated   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.

       -j | --journal-device FILE
	      FILE is name of block device where the file system is to have journal on.

       -o | --journal-offset N
	      N  is an offset where journal starts when it is to be on a separate device. Default
	      is 0. Makes no effect when journal is to be on a host device

       -s | --journal-size N
	      N is size of journal in blocks. When journal is to be on a separate  device  -  its
	      size  defaults to number 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  jour-
	      nal. If specifed incorrectly, it will be adjusted.

       -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 information 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 about other bugs to the ReiserFS
       mail-list <reiserfs-list@namesys.com>
