thats not quite right, if i understand what the page you're referring to
says. the page says:

Your kernel will need support for extended attributes on the filesystem
you are indexing. For Reiser3 and ext2 filesystems, the default kernel
config does not enable the attributes. For ext2 filesystems, the kernel
option for attributes is CONFIG_EXT2_FS_XATTR. For ext3, it's

the standard ubuntu .config-file says:

$> grep REISERFS_FS_XATTR /boot/config-2.6.10-5-k7

so XATTR is indeed enabled for reiser and therefore ready for beagle.
or am i wrong?
