    5 <para>TO BE DONE</para>
     5<para>Ext3 is a journalized filesystem that is an extension to the ext2
     6filesystem. It is backward compatible with ext2 and the conversion from ext2
     7to ext3 is trivial.</para>
     8
     9<para>You don't need to install anything to use ext3, all the required
     10packages are available with a bare LFS system.</para>
     11
     12<para>When building the kernel, ensure that you have compiled in ext3
     13support.  If you want your root partition to be ext3, then compile the ext3
     14support in the kernel, else you may compile it as a module. Recompile the
     15kernel if needed.</para>
     16
     17<para>Edit your /etc/fstab. For each partition that you want to convert into
     18ext3, 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
     24that the partition will not be checked for consistency during bootup by the
     25checkfs script. You may replace the ext3 fs type in the above by auto if you
     26want to ensure that the partition is mounted if you accidentally skip
     27enabling the ext3 support in the kernel.</para>
     28
     29<para>For each partition that you have converted to ext3 in /etc/fstab,
     30enable 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
     35recompiled the kernel to enable ext3 support.</para>
