squashfs-tools should be upgraded urgently from 3.4 to 4.0. Kernel 2.6.29 doesn't support squashed filesystems older than 4, making them unmountable. This is critical (at least for me) because I own a eee900 and my space is quite limited. My whole root is squashfs compressed.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
1. mksquash any folder with current squashfs-tools
2. attempt to mount the squashed filesystem with kernel >= 2.6.29
This task depends upon
