Is there a way to turn off the journalling?
(Or is this something I really shouldn't be doing?)
Change /etc/fstab to mount the partitions as EXT2 instead of EXT3
then do a reboot or just unmount the partitions and then remount
them. EXT3 is just EXT2 plus a journal.
But don't try going the other way, or the fit will hit the shan.
As long as you don't try to apply a journal that has become
stale, you should be able (with proper procedure) to convert
from ext2 to ext3 without creating a mess. Back on Redhat
7.2, 7.3, 8.0, or 9, I converted from ext2 to ext3 by simply
doing 'tune2fs -j' on the applicable partitions and updating
initrd to include the ext3 module. Other than forgetting to
update initrd the first time through, it worked without any
(Yes, that is one of my email addresses.)
