Cannot mount with GUI 0xF8DA000C

Help

  • Greetings,

    I have a new 500GB disk formatted with a single ext2 partition.   I can mount the partition on the command line, no problems.   e2fsck says the partition is clean.

    The GUI won't mount it - when I use ExtFSManager it says:

    Command: Mount
    Device: disk3s1
    Message:  Unsupported request (The filesystem may need repair.   Please use Disk Utility to check the filesystem.)
    Error: 0xF8DA000C

    I don't have the option of running the repair in disk utility, and hitting mount from there does nothing.   When the machine boots, it says "The disk inserted is not supported by this system."

    This is an Intel OSX 10.4.8.

    Any ideas?   I have been trying to get a filesystem that Windows, Linux, and OSX can all use that's NOT FAT32.   I need files bigger then 4GB.

    Thanks!

     
    • I should point this out, too:

      metisosx:/usr/local/sbin root# disktool -l
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk1s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk0',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk0s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk4',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk4s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk4s2',Mountpoint = '/', fsType = 'hfs', volName = 'MacOS')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk5',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk5s1',Mountpoint = '/Volumes/500GB Disk1', fsType = 'ntfs', volName = '500GB Disk1')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk2',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk2s1',Mountpoint = '/Volumes/400GB DISK', fsType = 'msdos', volName = '400GB DISK')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk3',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')
      ***Disk Appeared ('disk3s1',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '')

      disk3s1 shows no mount point, no fsType, etc.

      as pointed out on this forum before the gui portion of ext2fsx is out of order at the moment: you have to use the command line --

      mkdir /Volumes/Foo
      sudo mount -t ext2 /dev/disk3s1 /Volumes/Foo

      switch to the finder, press command-shift-g and go to /Volumes/Foo

      disktool output must be normal because disktool -l doesn't list any ext2 for me, too, even when mounted.
