Description Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-07-19 15:29:40 EDT
Fairfax beta2:
Installation using disk-druid, trying to check the "migrate partition to 
ext3" in the "edit"-box - makes it vanish without the possibility to 
press "OK".
The migration to ext3 still seems to work OK if mountpoint is set.
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-07-19 17:18:58 EDT
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-19 20:15:17 EDT
Fixed.
Comment 3 Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-08-19 07:38:10 EDT
This bug was fixed in beta3, but is back in rc1.
In beta3 and rc1 the conversion from ext2 -> ext3 doesn't work, but the updates
(to ext3) is written to /etc/fstab. Result: the (not) converted disks is not
mounted because of wrong fs-type.
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-08-21 10:41:58 EDT
exactly how did you reproduce this on rc1?
Comment 5 Inger Karin Haarbye 2001-08-21 11:12:05 EDT
custom install -> disk-druid -> format the root partition to ext3
 - then I want to migrate my other partitions from ext2 to ext3. When I check 
the "migrate partition to ext3" in the "edit"-box - it vanish without the 
possibility to press "OK".

With beta2 the migration from ext2 to ext3 was working, but not in rc1.

When starting my new system the root-partition is mounted ok, but none of my 
data-partitions.

From /var/log/messages:
Aug 19 13:28:55 opuntia kernel: EXT3 FS 2.4-0.9.6, 11 Aug 2001 on ide0(3,3),

Same happens to the other 3 partitions I tried to migrate.
If I edit /etc/fstab and use ext2 instead of ext3 on this partitions, 
roswell(2) will be able to mount them.
