Re: fedora-list Digest, Vol 64, Issue 70



You can see with
$ mount
as what format everything is mounted as. You can mount ext3 as ext4 but
not the other way around. Of course, this doesn't help you determining
what format the partition really has. To do that, you need to
# tune2fs -l /dev/partition
and look at the "Filesystem features".

$ man tune2fs
tells you that ext4-only features are ununit_bg and flex_bg. If you see
these your partition is ext4, if not it can be mounted as ext3.

You can also use the blkid command which will give a more specific result. It will state "ext3" or "ext4"

#blkid  /dev/partition
