Re: [opensuse] kernel support for older filesystems (was: openSUSE 13.2 and old...)

It looks to me as if the extN driver are compiled in to the kernels I have.

On my 13.2 machine:

grep -i ext2 /boot/config-3.16.6-2-desktop
# CONFIG_EXT2_FS is not set
CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23=y

Looks like the ext2 driver is not compiled in.

What about ext3:

grep -i ext3 /boot/config-3.16.6-2-desktop
# CONFIG_EXT3_FS is not set

Not it either.

If you want to have those drivers with a opensuse kernel you need to
recompile the kernel as far as I know.

Given support for EXT2 & EXT3 in the EXT4 driver for some considerable time,
what reason would there be for a mere mortal to use the older driver for
whatever EXT2/3 filesystems may actually be used?
