OS/2 see ext2fs ? drivers

Post by Ed Mar » Wed, 05 Jul 1995 04:00:00


 Are there any drivers for os/2 to have os/2 be able to 'see' and
use the Linux ex2fs file system ?  I would think since all Linux
source is available some one ported it to a os/2 driver by now

1. Linux ext2fs IFS driver for OS/2 : ext2-os2 0.2a needs alpha testers.


I've just uploaded a new version of ext2-os2 for ALPHA TESTING.
ext2-os2 is an Installable File System Driver (IFS) for OS/2 that allows
OS/2 to access Linux ext2fs partitions seamlessly as if they were normal
OS/2 drive letters. I need some INTREPID people to test the new features
of this alpha version....the main new feature being WRITE access :-))
The package also includes Deon's Linux partition filter (ext2flt) V1.2,
this filter will allow you to use ext2-os2 without hacking your partition
table(s). It also includes the full ext2-os2.ifs sources.

Please read carefully the documentation before testing ext2-os2.

The package is  on ftp-os2.nmsu.edu in /incoming, then will be moved to
/new and /os2/diskutils, the file is named ext2_02a.zip.

I'd like to thanks all V0.1 alpha testers for their feedback. Version
0.1 alpha was a success (ext2-os2 V0.1 was much stable than I thought !).
Now for version 0.2, it's another story...since write access is a lot
more complicated and bugs a lot more dangerous for your HD's health ....

Happy testing,
