When using an ext4 file system without a journal, print will list that partition as having an "ext2" file system.
-Create an ext4 file system without a journal on a partition:
"mkfs.ext4 -O ^has_journal /dev/sda1" or for an existing ext4 file system, convert it to one without a journal: "tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/sda1"
-Use parted to display the drive's partition table:
"parted /dev/sda print"
The partition you just created will be listed as ext2, which is incorrect. We can check: "df -T" will report the partition correctly as ext4.
