Modern Ext3 for 2.2.21 (Playstation 2 Linux)?

Modern Ext3 for 2.2.21 (Playstation 2 Linux)?

Post by Dax Kelso » Wed, 16 Oct 2002 09:10:09



I have a Playstation 2 running Linux. Currently it runs the 2.2.21
kernel.

I would like to upgrade from ext2 to ext3.

Is there a modern port of ext3 for the 2.2 kernel?

ext3-0.0.7a is known to work flawlessly.

Err, I wouldn't go that far.  In particular, error handling in the
case of I/O errors, out-of-memory errors, etc. may not work completely
correctly with ext3-0.0.7a.

It would be possible to try to backport a more recent version of ext3
to the 2.2 kernel, but it would probably be less work to forward port
the necessary drivers, etc. for the Playstation 2 to 2.4 or 2.5.....
