painted into a corner
I just installed stretch to a fresh 2T HD. letting it autopartition and
format for separate /, swap, /var and /home partitions. But I didn't let
it overwrite the grub on the 1st drive it was/is booting wheezy from.
I figured I'd mount it to wheezy and copy over my personal stuff, like an
email corpus well over 15GB reaching back to 2002.
But I can't mount much of the drive, / is all that will actually mount,
because the 2 versions of ext4 are incompatible, nearly all the mount
and e2tools can't touch the installers ext4 file systems.
For instance, its not mounted:
gene@coyote:~$ e2fsck /dev/sdb8
e2fsck 1.42.5 (29-Jul-2012)
/dev/sdb8 has unsupported feature(s): metadata_csum
e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!
And of course whats installed to wheezy is the latest available wheezy
version of e2fsck.
Whats the recommended way to do these mounts so I can maintain as much
continuity as possible?
Cheers, Gene Heskett
