RE: RH 6.2 + VA Linux Enhancements (includes ext3 0.5b) Problem


So suppose I start with a RedHat 6.2 or 7.0 (your choice) cold install.
What's the easiest way to proceed to something reliable?  I take it there
are no binary RPMs.

Known bug with how the kernel initializes the journal features.  It is
fixed in later releases of ext3 (not sure exactly when).  You _could_
use the new e2fsprogs to create your journal for you (which would fix
_this_ problem), which would only involve "tune2fs -j /dev/hdx".

However, 0.0.5b is a bit old and other problems have been fixed since then.
