yeah.. Really. Here's what I do.
I have ext3 partitions, so I decided if they are different partitions, then I can compile my kernel with ext2 as a module and ext3 builtin.
So I do it and reboot. Panic! Reason? Cannot find filesystem for the root partition.
The error is in the kernel itself either way. Pick your reason.
1) ext3 is identified as ext2 on bootup.
2) There is no fallback to ext3 if ext2 is not found.
Doesn't make sense. The kernel just tries all registered filesystems
for the rootfs until one clames it. It means you either:
- don't actually have ext3 in the kernel or
- the filesystems actually is ext2 and not ext3
Try calling debugfs /dev/$ROOTDEVICE and then typing features, what does it
