ext3 not on list of filesystems in disk druid
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:03 EST
When doing an install on a powerbook, I go into disk druid, try to have it
reformat an existing partition as ext3, but only ext2 is on the list of file
systems. No ext3.
This is the FC4-re0404.0 tree
This means the module isn't loading for some reason. Can you grab
/tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog? (if you've installed, they're

ext3 in the 2.6.11-1.1225_FC4 kernel works fine for me on PPC:
shinybook /home/dwmw2 $ uname -rm
shinybook /home/dwmw2 $ lsmod | grep ext3
ext3 171560 1
jbd 107224 1 ext3
This looks like something's going wrong with the installer image -- why isn't
jbd.ko getting loaded before ext3.ko?
But yes, the root of the problem _does_ lie with the kernel. Since ext3 is our
default file system, we _really_ shouldn't make things gratuitously more fragile
by building it as a module instead of statically in the kernel.
I'm told this should be fixed in FC4-re0406.1, however other installer issues
prevent this from actually being installed (tracebacks in anaconda?).
This is fixed; verified with the FC4-re0409.1 tree
