How can a partition be labeled both ext2 and ext3? How does this affect fstab?


I am setting up my /etc/fstab on my second operating system in sda6.
checking blkid I get:
Code:
# blkid
/dev/sda5: UUID="8fb16634-354d-483d-9b11-40cb452db175" TYPE="swap" 
/dev/sda6: UUID="ffcb5e5c-f2e0-47b4-966e-9fcd4f8af5a9" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3" 
/dev/sda1: UUID="b2aa2689-a505-491a-8acb-136545a3bd38" TYPE="ext4"
When I assign /dev/sda6 /boot Do I do ext2
but on the next fstab line put
/dev/sda6 / and so do ext3 ?

Some of the veteran people on linuxquestions.org should get together and write a thorough article on the boot process, dual booting, and chain booting.

Thank you #273.
"I am not a free man, I am a number" is reminiscent of "The Prisoner" (which says the negation of your statement). Well, off to gentoo prison ... perhaps the next time I am on here it will be to post my success at installing gentoo ... if I can escape #2. I'll mark this solved.

That is the intention it is a somewhat veiled nod to the virtual Panopticon we find ourselves in nowadays.
Glad to help and good luck with Gentoo.
