    App to mount Linux filesystems
    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!
