unable to set superblock flags
An ext3 filesystem would not mount today :(
e2fsck (under MacOS 10.4/ppc) only gave:
$ e2fsck -fv /dev/rdisk0s4 fsck.ext3: unable to set superblock flags on /dev/rdisk0s4Then I remembered to try with a dfferent superblock, and it worked perfectly:
$ mkfs.ext3 -n /dev/disk0s4 [...] Superblock backups stored on blocks: 32768, 98304, 163840, 229376, 294912, 819200, 884736, 1605632Note: Don't forget the -n option, otherwise
mkfs.ext3will really format the partition!
$ e2fsck -b 32768 -fv /dev/rdisk0s4 [...] $ mount_ext2 /dev/disk0s4 /Volumes/disk0s4/Now mounting succeeds again. Yeah, ext3 ;-)
