I wonder if someone can tell me how I can mount a e2fs from the shell??
I get a error when I try to do so just with mount.

I don't think it is in the FAQ.

Hi Kwun,

mounting an ext2fs partion from the shell should work with mount this
          mount -t ext2 /dev/xxxx /what_ever_your_path_is

Certainly your devices has to bear a ext2fs, made bei mke2fs. The
directory /what_ever_your_path_is also has to be available and the
device (partition) may not be already mounted.



1. Q: The effect of mounting e2fs using "sync" option

I'm working on a system that uses Linux as an embedded controller.
From time to time, we can expect that the system will loss power and
shutdown without having the opportunity to sync and unmount its
filesystems cleanly.  We're hoping that e2fsck will be able to
repair any damage when the system comes back up.

Question:  Would mounting with the "sync" option help here?  My
guess is that it would cut performance but also reduce the risk
of unrecoverable damage to the FS on powerdown.  Am I right?

Any better suggestions?
