    Was blkid added to Jaunty?

    output of blkid in Terminal gives me

    /dev/sda1: UUID="A22AA8492AA81BF3" LABEL="ACER" TYPE="ntfs"
    /dev/sda5: UUID="9672-D88B" TYPE="vfat"

    Slug71,
    the output of blkid has been since ever (I remember being able to use that command since 7.10 if not before. This is output of the same on kernel 2.6.27-7-generic (On Intrepid)

    Code:
    ~$ blkid
    /dev/sda1: UUID="9560c727-a052-43ff-a097-b6af01287f7c" TYPE="ext3" SEC_TYPE="ext2" 
    /dev/loop0: TYPE="squashfs" 
    /dev/sda2: UUID="fc24631b-c156-4beb-bf61-be84e24bc946" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3" 
    /dev/sda3: UUID="7c003381-39d7-4126-8b9b-dbdbf3955eea" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3" 
    /dev/sda4: UUID="baa0d92f-3112-42ab-aaf7-b2e416dea782" TYPE="swap"

    Yes but Theodore points to this changelog


    http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changel...ntu1/changelog


    http://ext4.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Ext4_Howto

    For people who are running Ubuntu, it is *highly* recommended that you download a set of modified util-linux packages and install them. Packages for Ubuntu Hardy are available here. These packages revert a change made by Ubuntu to use the volid library instead of the blkid library. The volid library has a number of shortcomings, including that they don't work on freshly created filesystems or swap devices until after you reboot (since it is tied to udev probing) and the volid library doesn't understand ext4dev filesystems. The blkid library is much better, and Debian uses the blkid library for util-linux. Unfortunately, Ubuntu chose to make this reason for some unknown reason. For other versions of Ubuntu, the patch that was applied can be found here.


    Nevertheless a big mystery for me that this cannot be sorted out...

    And I am no developer.....

    Until this is commented within a bug report from a real developer I am not going to run a system partition with EXT4.

    And I also finds it unpolite to leave a bug report from one of the most famous open sorce fighters in this shape... just a disgrace !


    I have a test partition with stolen media junk which I test with...
