i've successfully installed bt3final_usb and upgraded to the newest kernel 22.214.171.124 and everything goes fine thanks to the howto in BT3 HowTo section.
I've only a problem with EXT4.
When i've installed the newest iso to disk, i created my / partition as ext4.
If i try to mount that partition from live cd (mount -t ext4 /dev/sda1 xxxx) everything works fine, but the system can't mount my / ext4 partition on boot so i got
"VFS: cannot open root device UUID="xxx" or unknown block (0,0)
kernel panic: not syncing: unable to mount root fs on unknown block (0,0)"
/dev/sda1 = boot partition (ext3)
/dev/sda2 = swap
/dev/sda3 = / (ext4)
I've installed the latest grub i was able to find (grub-1.96) with the following option:
linux /boot/vmlinux root=/dev/sda3 rootfstype=ext4
i tried to use UUID (blkid to get the UUID of my root partition TYPE=EXT4) without success?
am i missing something?
The real question is why? Why are you going to all this trouble to use a ext4 file system or even a newer kernel for that matter. Generally people that need these type of tweaks know what the are doing so you have to ask your self "why do I need ext4 and is it worth all this trouble just tell people I'm using it?"
