Subjecte2fsprogs incompatibility
Hi all

There is a compatibility problem with the new kernels and e2fsprogs-1.02
(the latest on sunsite). I'm running 2.0.8. Linux/include/linux/ext2_fs.h
is different to ext2_fs.h in the e2fs package. EXT2_FIRST_INO has been renamed
and the name used for another purpose. When compiling, the kernel version
is included as <linux/ext2_fs.h>, so there are compiler errors. I temporarily
tweaked the links so the package file was used to compile. The resulting
programs failed one of the tests (f_dup2) but passed the other 26, so I hope
I'm on safe ground using them.

There have been so many kernel changes there must be lots of incompatibilities
like this. I hope the package maintainers will have the space, and be able to
find the energy, to sync with the kernel before the next GreatLeapForward (tm).
