RE: Question about Journaling Root Filesystem.



I see your point.  Here are the contents of my /proc/mounts file:
/dev/root / ext3 rw 0 0
/proc /proc proc rw 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs rw 0 0
/dev/hda1 /boot ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hda8 /data ext3 rw 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
/dev/hda3 /home ext3 rw 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
/dev/hda5 /tmp ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hda2 /usr ext3 rw 0 0

Maybe the ext3 stuff is in a module, instead of in the base kernel.
Would that cause this problem?

But it is clear from the error message that it IS a kernel problem.  It
would seem that you only _think_ that you are mounting the root
filesystem as ext3, because of output from "mount".  Check what is in
/proc/mounts to be sure.  If you have ext3 as a module, then there is
no problem in journaling other filesystems.
