I cant get into the final system!!! ...second build!!


Ok...........ok......

Ive put this thing together twice, paying close attention to everything. Both times when Ive tried to boot the system I get this error messafe......


fsck.ext2: filesystem has unsupported feature(s) (/dev/hda1)
e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!

this is always followed by a paragraph explaining that the errors couldnt be fixed automatically and the system will be halted until a system admin fixes the problem. Does anyone know what this suppose to mean??????

More importantly....is there a way to fix it from a bootable linux distro?


thanks

Don't know what exactly the problem is (have you checked your entries in /etc/fstab?) but you can mount the filesystems residing on your HD with a Live CD distro such as Knoppix (or any of the other good Live CD distro's out there).

well according to another thread here I just found........I have to change the 1's at the end of the fstab to 0's. I have knoppix and I can look at the fstab all damn day long! The questions is


How am I suppose to change the fstab now that the damn system wont boot??????

I cant write to the disk from knoppix or any other live distro for that matter. So I guess Im back to reinstalling the host and rebiulding the damn thing agin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whats your filesystem? Does your kernel support it? It should better to check root (/) when system boot up, I think.

Umm, i think that would be a bit rash, i cant see any reason why you wouldn't be able to write to that disk from knoppix or another partition. By defualt knoppix mounts partitions read only, so you have to umount and then remount the partiton to be able to change fstab.

You probably used fedora to make the ext2 file system.
It adds some extra stuff which lfs doesn't want.
Here's some info and possible way to fix it:
