Situation:
You are trying to modify a Linux Ext3 partition using PartitionMagic 8.0.
You see the message "Error 510: The version of the file system is not
supported."

Solution:
Norton PartitionMagic 8.0 and PartitionMagic 8.0 may not work with Linux
Ext3 partitions when the dir_index file system attribute is enabled. Recent
Linux releases from Red Hat and Fedora set the dir_index file system
attribute by default. To prevent the error, disable the dir_index attribute,
perform the partition modification, then re-enable the attribute.

To disable the dir_index attribute

   1. Boot into Linux single-user mode.
   2. Type the following:

      umount /dev/xxx


      where xxx is the device name of the file system to convert.
   3. Press Enter.
   4. Type the following:

      tune2fs -O^dir_index /dev/xxx

   5. Press Enter.
      The dir_index file system attribute is removed.
   6. Restart the computer into Windows.


You should now be able to perform the operation on the partition without
producing the error message.
