Mounting as ext2 is a useful technique for determining whether the fs is

What's the preferred way to try to convert a root filesystem to a bigger
journal? Forcing "rootfstype=ext2" at boot and boot into single-user, and

Boot single-user, "remount -o ro,remount /", "tune2fs -J size=xxxM" and reboot.
