How can I convert ext4 to ext3 without formatting

Posted 10-01-2009 at 12:56 AM by mcvasant

I've installed Fedora 11 and KDE4.3 CD built with Suse on my system.

The file system in FC11 is ext4 and
the file system in KDE4.3 is ext3.

KDE4.3 cannot mount ext4 partition and states it as unknown file system.

How can I convert ext4 to ext3 file system in FC11 without formatting the partition?

    You really should ask the question in the Forum instead of your blog. Alot more people will see it.
