Now that a blank partition has been set up, the file system can be created. The most widely-used system in the Linux
world is the second extended file system (ext2), but with newer high-capacity hard disks, journaling file systems are
becoming increasingly popular. We will create an ext2 file system. Instructions for other file systems can be found
at http:// cblfs. cross- lfs. org/ index. php?section=6#File_ System_ . 2F_ Block_ Device_ . 2F_ Inode_ Management_ Tools.

To create an ext2 file system on the CLFS partition, run the following:

mke2fs /dev/[xxx]

Replace [xxx] with the name of the CLFS partition (hda5 in our previous example).

Some host distributions use custom features in their filesystem creation tools (E2fsprogs). This can cause
problems when booting into your new CLFS system, as those features will not be supported by the
CLFS-installed E2fsprogs; you will get an error similar to unsupported filesystem features,
upgrade your e2fsprogs. To check if your host system uses custom enhancements, run the following

debugfs -R feature /dev/[xxx]

If the output contains features other than: dir_index; filetype; large_file; resize_inode or sparse_super
then your host system may have custom enhancements. In that case, to avoid later problems, you should
compile the stock E2fsprogs package and use the resulting binaries to re-create the filesystem on your CLFS

cd /tmp
tar xjf /path/to/sources/e2fsprogs-1.40.4.tar.bz2
cd e2fsprogs-1.40.4
mkdir build
cd build
make #note that we intentionally don't 'make install' here!
./misc/mke2fs /dev/[xxx]
cd /tmp
rm -rf e2fsprogs-1.40.4

If a swap partition was created, it will need to be initialized for use by issuing the command below. If you are using
an existing swap partition, there is no need to format it.

mkswap /dev/[yyy]

Replace [yyy] with the name of the swap partition.
