[opensuse-factory] ext3

Hello,

Up to beta1, firmware of Genesi PPC machines (Pegasos & EFIKA) could list content of ext3 partitions and boot from them. With beta1 use of ext3 filesystems is no more possible from the firmware. Looking at the output of dumpfs (see below), only one feature seems to be added between older factory releases and beta1: needs_recovery Is there any way to turn it off during installation?

Bye,
CzP

What changed in file system creation with beta1? All the previous alpha & factory releases worked fine, I mean the firmware had no problem reading the ext3 partition formatted during installation. With beta1 this changed, the firmware can't list it any more...
Maybe a new e2fsprogs, which enables or uses more ext3 features.
Better ask on the factory list, if the feature list of mke2fs or the
config file changed.
