  • a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-i586-16.txz
  • a/e2fsprogs-1.43-i586-2.txz
    Do not use 64-bit by default on ext4, since some bootloaders cannot handle
    it yet. But use “auto_64-bit_support = 1”, which will enable 64-bit if the
    number of blocks for the file system requires the feature to be enabled.
