Re: Problems with ext3



Amit,

again thank you very much. You were right: from root i was able to mount the 
partition, I did not need to repair it. Now, everything is running smooth ( 
and I do not know why  )

Well, but examining "tune2fs" I got only the old version, which has not the 
option -j, although I had compiled and installed the new 1.27 version 
_before_ I changed the ext2 to an ext3 partition. This means, that during the 
crash recovery process, something has overrided at least the tune2fs 1.27  
version with the old one. Could this happen because I run fsck manually  ? I 
am runing a 2.4.18 self compiled kernel, but my original system is 2.4.4. 

ext3 is built-in in the kernel, not a module.

I do not have a /linuxrc ( I am running SuSE ). Mount statements are afaik 
only in fstab and were changed to ext3

Regards, Edgar
