Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225185
nautilus-2.16.2-7.fc6 mounts ext3 usb flash fs as ext2
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:49:12 EST
I have a 2GB usb flash drive:
[root@gnu-2 hjl]# fdisk /dev/sdc
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 126976.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/sdc: 2080 MB, 2080374784 bytes

Units = cylinders of 32 * 512 = 16384 bytes
