EXT

Installation

Note: Make sure "MacFUSE Compatibility Layer" was selected when you installed OSXFuse.

Download and install FUSE-Ext2 - (Official Website).

Usage

$ fuse-ext2 <device|image> <mountpoint> [-o option[,...]]
options:
ro   : mount read only
force: mount read/write
allow_others: allow other users to access
debug: noisy debug output

$ mount -t fuse-ext2 /dev/sda2 /mnt/sda2

Altough, write support is available (and it is pretty stable) please do not mount your filesystems with write support unless you do not have anything to loose.

Write Support

Write support is disabled by default, to enable write functionality for all volumes run the following command in Terminal (one line). You will be asked to enter your admin password.:

    sudo sed -e 's/OPTIONS="auto_xattr,defer_permissions"/OPTIONS="auto_xattr,defer_permissions,rw+"/' -i.orig /System/Library/Filesystems/fuse-ext2.fs/fuse-ext2.util
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
