hi all, looking for consensus & information...
Some of the uboots on our machines cannot read ext2/3 partitions that have 256 byte inodes. This size inode became default as of version e2fsprogs-1.40.5. So when using e2fsprogs-1.40.5 or later and invoking the normal
it results in uboot not being able to read that partition.
Whatever box you have, if possible can you please post your :
- LinkStation model
- uboot version
- uboot build date
- any other pertinent info (custom uboot, stock uboot, etc).
- and of course if it can or can't read the 256 byte inode partitions when using mkfs.ext3 from e2fsprogs-1.40.5 or later
In particular we are trying to figure out which machines are affected by this, so that any partitions that an installer might automatically create would be _readable_ by uboot.
