I have installed puppy precise 5.7.1 to IDE spinning HD (sda) After a frugal install to sda1 partition, configuration and save file seems to work fine on reboot. I am getting an error message when I try to mount sda2 which is formatted in ext4 (containing music, picture storage). Same partition is able to mount and accessible with BionicPup64, 8.0 without difficulty.

In Precise, I see the partition icon on the bottom and able to get a proper response with fdisk -l and blkid. When I click on the sda2 icon, pmount is activated but I get an error "pmount UNABLE to mount sda2". On terminal "dmesg | tail, EXT4-fs (sda2): error loading journal"

Can someone help so I can access sda2 in Precise?

Apparently there is a big disconnect between the various implementers of the EXT4 drivers on puppy. At any rate, as I understand it, If the EXT4 partition was created with a 64 bit version of Linux, the 32 bit versions can't mount it.

Apparently there was a 64bit ONLY implementation of ext4 and some of the devs went with that for some 64 bit Linuxes.

My advice? Format it ext4 with a 32bit Linux and don't look back ..

Sorry man .. Sad

That is not Puppy making 64bit ext4.
All Puppy versions (32 or 64 bit) still only make 32bit ext4 formats.

Other Linux OS (Ubuntu, Mint, etc...) they now make 64bit ext4 formats.

Was Puppy used to make the ext4 format?

I think the problem may be Precise 5.7.1 does not have the needed support for ext4.
Precise 5.7.1 was being developed when ext4 support was being put into Puppy.

Run Gparted.
Select view->File System Support
What does it show for ext4?
Are all columns checked with a green check mark?
