how to create ext3 filesystem using 'mke2fs -j'
i want to create ext3 filesystem on a disk which is newly partitioned.
i want to create it using mke2fs.
i followed this procedure:
mke2fs -j /dev/hda1
then i did
after this when i tried
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt
it is saying no such file or directory.
what may be the error.
i think kernel is not supporting ext3.
the kernel version is 2.659.
if possible can u tell me the steps to be followed when compiling kernel.
mainly the steps related to ext3 filesystem.
ext3 filesystems can be created by doing
mke2fs -j /dev/hda1 is perfectly ok. It creates ext2 with a journal - which is ext3 effectively.
but the error says: "no such file or directory" - which would mean that /mnt is not there - this is unlikely, but check.
Make sure support for ext3 is in the kernel or that the module is loaded - it should also be mountable as ext2 if ext3 is not available somehow.
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /mnt/disk_hda1
as root should do it - if not - look at the error.
