I've just completed the LFS6.0 book, but my system doesn't start
successfully. Instead it boots up to the message "checking file systems..."
and then stops with the following error "fsck.ext2: File system has
unsupported feature(s) (/dev/hdc9)" and "e2fsck: Get a newer version of

My host system is a newly installed Fedora Core 3 (i686) where I used the
following command to format my lfs partition: "/sbin/mke2fs -c -c -v
/dev/hdc9". I checked the version numbers and think that both systems (FC3 &
LFS6.0) use the same package "E2fsprogs (1.35)", so I'm a bit confused
because there is even no newer version available

Can anyone explain, what went wrong?
