Re: ext3


I am using kernel 2.2.25 from the sarge area on debian.org. How do I tell if I have ext3 in the kernel? This machine doesn't have enough space to install all the source and such, so I will not be able to build my own kernel.

Absolutely.  That's the great thing about ext3...

# tune2fs -j /dev/your.disk.partition.here

Don't forget to edit /etc/fstab afterwards!!

BTW, is ext3 support compiled into your kernel?
