Hi there,

I'm hardly the ideal person to answer, being a relative HURD newbie
myself, but this looks like a fairly obvious filesystem problem to me.
How did you create the partition you're using for your HURD install? Was
the FS created with -o sparse_super and -o hurd? If not, I believe that
there is a script around which will dynamically change the FS without
needing a reinstall - or maybe you'll feel a reinstall is easier. In any
case, you can find out with /sbin/dumpe2fs under linux.

If things are OK under Linux, and you've created the FS with the right
options, then could this be a bug against the HURD's implemenmtation of
ext2fs? Just asking...
