I try to create a filesystem on a second IDE 18G hard drive using mke2fs. 
The partition starts at cyl. 1033. I do not plan to boot from this 
My command : mke2fs -c /dev/hdb8
I get error message : Invalid argument passed to ext2 library while 
setting up the super block.
I checked partitions and hdb8 is existing.

Is there any limitation that could explain this problem.

Is this still happening if you use a newer e2fsprogs version recompiled for
RHL 6.2? Thanks.
Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2001-05-15 12:13:31 EDT
I assume this is resolved. Please reopen if this problem still exists.
