Hello, I need to mount a Linux partition om my iMac G5. I tried ext2FSManager but it keeps saying I need to repair the permissions on the disk. I tried that but it still won't let me mount it.

You may wish to check out Ext2 for Mac OS X. See:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsx

This will work if your Linux volume is formatted for ext2 or ext3. If it is formatted for Reiserfs, the other commonly used Linux file system, you may need to take a network based approach, and SAMBA it off your Linux system.

Tell us a little more about the problem. Is this an external hard drive, or have you added a new drive to your Mac that happens to have a Linux partition on it? Do you know the format of the Linux partition? Linux supports a LOT of different file systems!

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
