I have ext3 compiled directly into the kernel. I use a monolitic kernel,
so I have all the stuff I need compiled directly into the kernel.
I have another question:
I converted the partition /dev/hdxx to ext3 using tune2fs -j /dev/hdxx.
If I don't change ext2 to ext3 into fstab, in the next boot /dev/hdxx
will be mounted as ext2 again. Is the journal file lost in this process?
I mean, if one week after I change my mind, can I change the fs type for
/dev/hdxx from ext2 to ext3 in fstab without problem? will the mounted
filesystem be a genuine ext3 one?
