Again Some kind of bug ? anyway

Ok it was late. I got a vanilla slack8. Grabbed the 2.4.13. Grabbed the ext3 patch and checked the web site. It said that the minumum req was e2fsprogs 1.22. (Which I think I had. Got that version number anyway.) Compiled the kernel with that recomended extra option. Rebooted, tried to convert my 60 gig ext2 disk to ext3. Started tune2fs, at the beginning I noticed some disk activity, but tune2fs didn't get passed the first line of output and just used up all of my spare cpu cycles. At first I thought, I got a big disk maybe it takes 30 minutes or so, but I soon realised that it didn't work. So I thought, well it couldn't hurt to try with the latest version of e2fsprogs(1.25), so I did. And it worked and I got happy. But as the web site mentioned that 1.22 was the minimum and I couldn't get it to work, I thought I should at least report that.

Which kernel, and what was the error message? "It refused" isn't a particularly complete description of the problem. :-)
