Change inode size

Change inode size

As root:
  1. Check the inode size of the partition (here I assume /dev/sda3) and note the UUID:
    
     
    1. dumpe2fs -h /dev/sda3
  2. Do a backup!
  3. Reformat the partition (check /etc/mke2fs.conf and man mke2fs): mke2fs -v -I 128 -j -L <volume_label> -U <original UUID> /dev/sda3
  4. Restore the data.
If you had installed a grub boot loader in the partition, restore it:

 
  1. grub
  2.  
  3. grub> setup (hd0,2) (hd0,2)
  4.  
  5. grub> quit
