Enabling ext3

    I've installed Xen 3.0.3 using the instructions from the HowtoForge (using the binary option). But when I boot up a domU, I get the following error:

    Code:
    EXT2-fs warning (device hda1): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3 filesystem as ext2
    VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem
    I found some instructions that say to use "mkinitrd -v -f with=ext3", however, those arguments don't work with the mkinitrd on Debian Sarge. Can somebody please explain how to do ext3 in my user domains?

    What's in domU's /etc/fstab?

    I use ext3, since that's what the HowTo said to do.

    As a followup, I did a
    Code:
    mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd-2.6.16-xen 2.6.16-xen
    and then added that initrd as a ramdisk in the xen configs, and now it seems to be mounting stuff as ext3.

    So it's working now?

    Well, it says that disk is mounted with ext3, so yes, I guess you'd say it's working. I wish I had a bit more fine-grained control over what went in the initrd, but it's working and that's all I've got time to worry about right now.
