ATTENTION : Linux ext2fs for OS/2 alpha testers - fix for 0.3 available

Hi,
If you are using and testing ext2-os2 (Linux ext2fs driver for OS/2) then you
might be interested :
I've just uploaded a fix for ext2-os2 0.3 on ftp-os2.nmsu.edu (file ext2fix.zip
in /incoming then /new and /os2/diskutil). It corrects the following symptom :
System halt (trap D) when loading WinOS2 file manager *AND* ext2-os2.ifs not
being the last IFS line in CONFIG.SYS.
This may also correct the following problem : random trap D at boot time just
before WPS appears, depending on what drivers are in CONFIG.SYS.

1. Linux ext2fs IFS for OS/2 : ext2-os2 0.3 available for testing

Hi,

I've just uploaded a new version of ext2-os2 (version 0.3) for alpha testing.
ext2-os2 allows OS/2 to access Linux native partitions (ext2fs file system)
as normal OS/2 drive letters (NOTE : this is still alpha level stability code)

It is on ftp-os2.nmsu.edu in /incoming (then in /new and /os2/diskutil),
the package file is named ext2_03a.zip.
It comes with all its sources, as well as Deon van der Westhuysen's Linux
partition filter.
