Mount fails with "unknown filesystem type 'jfs'" even if a new filesystem is created with jfs_mkfs on this system and jfs_fsck reports it as clean.  So, I can create the jfs filesystem, and validate it is good, I just can't mount and use it.
id you lsmod | grep jfs   does it show
the jfs kernel modules loaded?

On my version of vanilla kernel, the module is
located here:


If it does exist in your os directory, then
you might try to modprobe jfs
if not, you need to build the module from source.
