Ghost, ext2 and ext3, convert ext3 -> ext2
- Ghost 7 doesn't do ext3. I had a hint of this moving from 30G to 40G but it is now verified. It makes
fsck.ext3 core dump. Not a pretty sight. I was very afraid that I lost my firewall forever.
- You can fool 'mount' but not 'fsck'. You can do '
mount -t ext2' to mount ext3 as ext2. If you do '
fsck -t ext2' on corrupted ext3, it will still crash knowing it is ext3.
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/hda7' will convert an ext3 partition (eg hda7) to ext2. Since Ghost copies ext3 as ext2 (which corrupts the special journal) this is required.
