r282fa142 rc88227e 3 3 <title>Ext3</title> 4 4 5 <para>TO BE DONE</para> 5 <para>Ext3 is a journalized filesystem that is an extension to the ext2 6 filesystem. It is backward compatible with ext2 and the conversion from ext2 7 to ext3 is trivial.</para> 8 9 <para>You don't need to install anything to use ext3, all the required 10 packages are available with a bare LFS system.</para> 11 12 <para>When building the kernel, ensure that you have compiled in ext3 13 support. If you want your root partition to be ext3, then compile the ext3 14 support in the kernel, else you may compile it as a module. Recompile the 15 kernel if needed.</para> 16 17 <para>Edit your /etc/fstab. For each partition that you want to convert into 18 ext3, edit the entry so that it looks similar to the following line.</para> 19 20 <para><userinput>/dev/hdXX /mnt_point ext3 defaults 1 0</userinput></para> 21 22 <para>In the above line, replace /dev/hdXX by the partition (e.g. /dev/hda2), 23 /mnt_point by the mount point (e.g. /home). The 0 in the last field ensures 24 that the partition will not be checked for consistency during bootup by the 25 checkfs script. You may replace the ext3 fs type in the above by auto if you 26 want to ensure that the partition is mounted if you accidentally skip 27 enabling the ext3 support in the kernel.</para> 28 29 <para>For each partition that you have converted to ext3 in /etc/fstab, 30 enable the journal for the partition by running the following command.</para> 31 32 <para><userinput>tune2fs -j /dev/hdXX</userinput></para> 33 34 <para>Remount the concerned partitions, or simply reboot if you have 35 recompiled the kernel to enable ext3 support.</para> 36 37 <para>More information is available at <ulink 38 url="http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/ext3/ext3-usage.html"/></para> 6 39 7 40 </sect1>
