Re: Which are the steps to apply a Ext3 file system?



You write:

You have too many of these.  You only need the most recent one (I don't
know which it is).  Also, you don't need the .src.rpm if you are not
building the e2fsprogs yourself.

I think this is a message from an old version of the e2fsprogs.  In fact,
e2fsprogs does not have mke3fs I think (mine does, but that's another story).  
Try using "mke2fs -j /dev/hda6" to make a new filesystem.
