Re: Problem Mounting Drive formatted EXT3
- I had a similar problem when using partition magic to create/format
my partitions from a windows machine. The same drive worked fine
once I had partitioned and formatted from a linux box.
If you don't have a linux machine other than the slug, install the
busybox ipkg. There is a non-crippled version of fdisk in there
that you can use to create your new partition. Then you can use the
linksys mkfs to format ext3.
