auto in fstab does not work



Hi,

I have ext3 running on my home and usr partition and selected ext3 in my
fstab for them. But I'd also like to swtich my /-partition to ext3. But
as I might have to boot a non-ext3 kernel, too, I have to use auto for
the filesystem in my fstab.

However auto mounts all ext3 filesystems as ext2.

To be a bit more specific:

My versions:
kernel 2.4.9, ext3-2.4-0.9.6-249, e2fsprogs-1.23-1, mount-2.10r-5 on
RH7.1

dumpe2fs /dev/hda8:
dumpe2fs 1.23, 15-Aug-2001 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
Filesystem features:	  has_journal filetype needs_recovery
sparse_super

my fstab (where I'd like to change from ext3 to auto):
/dev/hda8		/home			ext3	defaults	1
2

/etc/filesystems:
ext3
ext2
nodev proc
nodev devpts
iso9660
vfat
hfs

/proc/filesystems:
nodev	proc
nodev	sockfs
nodev	tmpfs
nodev	pipefs
	ext3
	ext2
nodev	devpts
	vfat
nodev	coda

Any help or suggestions would be welcome.

Ciao
Florian
