View Full Version : FC4 and kernel-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4

30th March 2006, 10:43 AM
I'm just installed (successfull) kernel-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4 from FC4 updates. After this I made an attempt to boot this kernel. The attempt ended with error "mount: error 6 mounting ext3".
Previous kernlel (kernel-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4) work fine.

Are there other solution of this problem?
Why Redhat don't build ext3 support in the kernel?

I have tried to stay away from the new kernel for the time being. I had major problems getting the redhat 2.6.15 to work on my system. I ultimately just compiled my own. I am assuming I will have to do the same with this kernel as well.
