  I think if mulinux had tune2fs in one of the add-on packages, I could
use the method described previously to turn off the sparse super feature
from mulinux. I know, I know, the FAQ says "no more binaries", but this
one would sure fix a big problem :)
  Has anyone else had problems with this? When I created the filesystems
using Debian testing, I didn't specify the -O feature, so I'm assuming it
is default now. Does that mean *all* new filesystem will be unmountable
by mulinux?
