RE: Changing journaling mode on root / loop-aes



Mr. Ivanov:

	I do not remember, I think when I did a fresh install of RH
Linux 7.3 and I choose EXT3, but I may have done the tunefs I really do
not remember. The point is, I would imagine either way it ought to work
the same, no?

	I will make sure that both the /etc/fstab and rootflags are in
force next I try to boot up that way.

	Thanks for your help thus far.

Are you sure that your partition is ext3. It seems that the kernel
does't
recogize this partition as ext3.
How did you made this partition ext3 - did you format it with "mke2fs -j
/dev/hda6" or use "tune2fs -j /dev/hda6" to make it.
