Re: A question about compiling the kernel with ext3 support



Hi,

Thanks for the info.

I fixed the ext3 kernel compilation problems by compiling ext3 into the
kernel and
taking ext2fs out and placing it into a module, since i had problems when
both
ext2 and ext3 was placed into the kernel. So i now have ext3 root
filesystem, which is a
goodthing and I have no more problems.

But just for general knowledge, how would one go about getting ext3fs to
load with the system
as a module if ext2fs was the root filesystem?

Thanks
Will ^_^
