None of the pre-built kernels work.
I even did a "wget -np -m " on the feeds dir of that server and then looked for all uImage files.
None had ext 2 or 3 support.

I'm installing a Ubuntu 10 32bit  VM to see if it can work.
Wish me luck.

Does the pre-built kernel and image here
(http://cumulus.gumstix.org/feeds/current/glibc/images/gumstix-custom-verdex/
) work for you?

The verdex kernels are built off mainline with a number of necessary
patches maintained within a classic open-embedded repository.
The OE repository:
http://gumstix.org/software-development/open-embedded/190-verdex-svn-repository.html
There is some slightly newer stuff here:
http://wiki.gumstix.org/index.php?title=Verdex_Git_Repository

If you are just looking to build a kernel and not setup the whole dev.
environment, I'd grab a mainline kernel (git clone <linus repository>
of the appropriate version) and apply the patches found in either of
the repositories above.
