  • On a MacBook Pro running Mavericks, this filesystem is too slow to be usable. It is also very "jerky", and even hangs for up to a minute at a time in the middle of a simple filename completion operation. Somebody is simply wasting a lot of other people's time making them suffer while coming to these obvious conclusions!

  • Thanks for Fuse-ext2, it's wonderful!

  • fuse-ext2 works but is very slow (I get some 7 MB/s reading and 1 MB/s writing via USB 2.0). If you have the choice, better use Apple's HFS+ on the external drive, which is much faster (I get some 30 MB/s both reading and writing, both on Mac and Linux). HFS+ is supported by Linux mostly out-of-the-box. To get write access even to a journaled partition on Ubuntu, install support via 'sudo apt-get install hfsprogs' and when the drive is mounted (e.g., automatically), re-mount it writable using 'sudo mount -o remount,force,rw /mount/point'
