Hi,

I'm in the process of installing on a sparc 20. The livecd kernel is 2.4 but I'll be installing 2.6.
I'd like to know if using hashed b-tree indexing (for 2.6 kernels) will confuse the 2.4 kernel
currently loaded...

Thanks,
ry

note: I'm refering to chapter 4.d "Creating Filesystems", section on "Applying a Filesystem to a Partition"
located here...

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on Sparc.

ext2/3 has supported dir_index for some time. In both the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels afaik.

Looks like I can build my partitions without -O dir_index and run tune2fs after the install is done.
Code:
# tune2fs -j -O dir_index /dev/hda3
