mounting ext3 file system as ext2 on slackware with custom build kernel


Hi, I just rebuild the kernel for slackware 13, everything works, but root file system which is ext3 is mounted as ext2. Normally I've build ext3, ext4 and so on as modules, not in the kernel... but if I do this, then the kernel mounts the file system as ext2, which is build in the kernel. I also modified rc.modules so I can make sure that ext3,ext4,jbd are loaded, but it doesnt work.

Does anyone knows whats the issue?

What's in your /etc/fstab? If the kernel sees ext2, it won't load the ext3 module. Besides, it would be wise to compile ext3 support into the kernel if you use it for the root fs....
