I just upgraded to slackware-current im still running ext3 but thought i might try upgrading my fs to ext4. before doing so i used an empty partition to test it. made hda2 it ext4 and cp -r /boot /mnt/hda2. i rebooted went into the grub console root (hd0,1) told me it was ext2 type 0x83(i read ext4 is backward compatible with ext2 and 3) so i tried kernel /b(tab) brought /boot/ (tab) brought some file name that was all jumbled and doesnt exist. I really dont want to use lilo just to get ext4. is there some way i can fix grub to use ext4? im using grub from slackware-current/extra.
