mount boot unknown filesystem type 'ext2'

Problem :

When I execute : mount /boot/, I have the following :
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext2'

In my /etc/fstab, I have  :
 /dev/sda1               /boot           ext2            defaults        1 2

Solution :

Add a journal to /dev/sda1 :

tune2fs -O has_journal /dev/sda1

Then modify ext2 en ext3 in /etc/fstab.

 /dev/sda1               /boot           ext3            defaults        1 2

So, now you can make a mount : mount /boot

Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu 9.10

I've found a post about installing Chrome on Ubuntu.I test it and it works ! So I put it here :

November 2nd, 2009
This post was written when Chrome was still not available for Linux. Chromium was the only option then. Now that Google Chrome is available, just go to Google's website and download the browser directly.

Add to your sources list.
$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
deb karmic main
deb-src karmic main
You may substitute jaunty, intrepid, hoary for other distributions.

Add the GPG keys.(all in one line)
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 0xfbef0d696de1c72ba5a835fe5a9bf3bb4e5e17b5

Run an update.
sudo apt-get update

Finally, install Google Chrome.
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
