Re: A question about compiling the kernel with ext3 support



I tried it two ways,

1)I built ext3 support into the kernel and followed all the steps within my
previous email
2)I built ext3 support as a module into the kernel just as showed in a
redhat kernel config in the linux-2.4.7 source config directory
and followed the steps within my previous email.

Compilation goes fine with the kernel. It's when i reboot and try to boot
with the new kernel is when problems happen.
I see a difference between the RH compiled kernel and mine, it's that the
kernel ext3fs is mounted and journals are mounted for the precompiled one
and mine doesn't mount them at all.

I guess I don't quite understand kernel compilation with ext3fs support and
probably missing a few steps within the way i built the kernel.
