#18076 new enhancement

CONFIG_TARGET_EXT4_JOURNAL not applied to /boot partition

Keywords: Cc:



At least some versions of pygrub, used by Xen Hypervisor, cannot open ext2 partitions. The result is that boot partition (sda1) in combine.img cannot be mounted, no kernel is found and OpenWRT is unbootable.

A workaround is to use "tune2fs -j" in order to enable journaling in /dev/sda1 partition after the image is generated.

However, there is a option in config that enables journaling (CONFIG_TARGET_EXT4_JOURNAL), but it applies only to rootfs image (and so sda2 in combined) but not to sda1.

Please, allow bootfs to respect CONFIG_TARGET_EXT4_JOURNAL option.

the bootfs seems to be generated directly by target/linux/x86/image/, that does not have a option to enable journaling.
