journelling is a function of the filesystem. it's either a case of a) can disable with a mount option, or b) can't disable under linux without reformatting the partition. – quack quixote Dec 22 '09 at 0:09
I hope that, if you find a solution, you come back here to answer this. :P – cregox Feb 19 '10 at 23:41

I was only able to find a couple of programs written in C for this. Here are a couple of links to start you in the right direction:

To compile a c program, do this:

gcc program.c where program.c is the file that you want to compile.

You'll probably need the build-essential package in ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

Remember- make sure to back up any important information before messing with stuff, especially before you use code you find on the internet
