Looks like the ext2 driver is not compiled in.

I prefer:

cer@Telcontar:~> zgrep -i ext2 /proc/config.gz
# CONFIG_EXT2_FS is not set
CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23=y

which runs the query against the actual loaded kernel.


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

But why would I want to compile the ext2 driver, when the ext4 driver includes the capabilities of of ext2 and 3?

In fact, I did not say that the kernel always included the specific ext2 driver. I said that openSUSE Linux can always use ext2:

cer@Telcontar:~> mount | grep ext2
/dev/sda2 on /boot type ext2 (rw,relatime)
/dev/sda1 on /other/test_a1/boot type ext2 (rw,relatime)
cer@Telcontar:~>

which is what matters.
