I haven't been able to mount some ext3 filesystems. When I experimented, it appears that most new ext3 filesystems default to 256 byte inodes. When I created a filesystem with 128 byte inodes then FreeBSD could mount it just fine. I didn't try ext2, but I think the inode is independent of ext2 or ext3. This is for FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE, so maybe things have changed for 7.2 or 8.0. -- Carl Johnson ca...@peak.org _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
