* Recent (post-alpha) kernels have a new test in place before
allowing a filesystem to be mounted with this development code - it
requires a special flag to be set. This is both to prevent ext3 from
accidentally being claimed as ext4, as well as to put a psychological
barrier in place. ;) When creating the filesystem, you must do:
[root]# mkfs.ext3 -E test_fs /dev/<device>
for pre-existing filesystems, to set the flag, do:
[root]# debugfs -w /dev/sda5
debugfs 1.40.5 (27-Jan-2008)
debugfs: set_super_value s_flags 4
If you don't do this, you may get a message like this upon bootup:
... and welcome to "alpha" :)
EXT4-fs: dm-1: not marked OK to use with test code
Please copy back to fedora-test if you like, I'm not on that list...
