I usually make my boot partition ext2 because it doesn’t stay mounted and doesn’t get written to unless i’m installing a new kernel or tweaking the options like vga=0×317 or whatever. So having a journal is a waste and it may as well just be ext2. But strangely enough, when I boot, grub sees the boot partition, grub.conf, and the kernel and loads with no problem. But when I try to mount /dev/sda1 from a shell it doesn’t seem to know what i’m talking about! I can mount ext3 and other file systems just fine, but not ext2? I could dig around in the kernel config and figure out what’s missing, but that really didnt matter in this case, so here’s the quick and easy fix with no fishy side effects:
mygentoo ~ # tune2fs -O has_journal /dev/sda1
Now I can mount it from bash just fine… well, that was weird.

Monday, May 3, 2010 at 14:32 UTC: Problems adding a computer: Some users have reported problems adding their computers to sync with their Ubuntu One personal cloud. Please review this FAQ item for assistance.
Some users have reported problems with finding the “Add Your Computer” button in this process. We believe this is due to the Ubuntu One Preferences application (step 1) not launching your default web browser (quickly enough… or at all) in order to proceed to step 2. If performing step 1 does not open your web browser (or a new tab if you already have a browser open) within a few seconds, please
close the Ubuntu One Preferences application window (if it’s already open)
open your Terminal (located in Applications >> Accessories)
and type the following:
u1sdtool -q; killall ubuntuone-login; u1sdtool -c
This should force a web browser to open and put you at step 2 of the process. This is temporary measure so users can get up and running quickly. We will implement a more permanent fix for this problem soon.
