Hi, This is probably way far unsupported, but here goes: I had been running ext3 0.0.3b for a while and found that I wanted to convert back to ext2 so I could still play with 2.4test kernels. Here is what I did: 1) boot the machine with kernel args init=/bin/bash 2) run debugfs on the root partition to remove the have_journal ext2 feature flag. 3) remount the root filesystem rw as ext2 Kernel Oopsville at that point. Why does ext3 even bother journaling when the filesystem is ro? 4) edit /etc/fstab so that / is ext2 5) sync the disks and reboot. 6) boot the machine with kernel args init=/bin/bash 7) fsck the / partition manually. Believe it or not, this worked fine except for the kernel Oops. The machine is fine now, running 2.4.0test10 (I'm using it as I type). --Matt -- "In Tyler We trust."
