mke2fs -jv /dev/<xxx> ; will not make a filesystem here


With command-line:fdisk -l
I just have one partition primary: /dev/sda1 (boot)

First of all in LFS book is command-line
mke2fs -jv /dev/<xxx>. I replace <xxx> by sda1
It will be mke2fs -jv /dev/sda1

This is my mistake:
/dev/sda1 is mounted; will not make a filesystem here!

I use Slackware 13.37

Might you show me what's wrong with it?
Thank you very much!!!

Hi

You will have to unmount the partition you want to use.
If that is the only spare partition you have and you are using it you will have to create another 1 Gparted might be a better option

Thank you very much!

I reinstalled Slackware with 2 partition include sda1 and sda2.
mke2fs -jv /dev/sda2
It's okey!
