Cannot mount jfs formatted drives with Mint 10 rc liveCD

Postby hinto on Fri Oct 22, 2010 1:03 pm

Guys,
I want to do an install of Mint 10 rc. I have 2 partitions '/' and '/home', so I will format over '/'. '/home' is jfs, and I cannot mount it with Nautilus (of gparted) in the liveCD image. Synaptic shows I have jfsutils in the LiveCD image. What am I missing?
Thanks.

[edit]
This is the error message I get when trying to mount the jfs drive:

Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb5,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
