How do you mount ext3 partitions on OS X?

I'm trying to mount an ext3 partition on an external USB drive on Mac OS X (10.6.1, intel).

I downloaded and installed MacFUSE-2.0.3,2 dmg and fuse-ext2-0.0.6 dmg.

I make a new directory; /Volumes/fando, and then try to mount the drive with...

$ fuse-ext2 /dev/disk1s2 /Volumes/fando/

...giving...

Quote:
Mounting /dev/disk1s2 Read-Only.
Use 'force' or 'rw+' options to enable Read-Write mode
fuse-ext2: opts.device: /dev/disk1s2 [main (../../fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2.c:348)]
fuse-ext2: opts.mnt_point: /Volumes/fando/ [main (../../fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2.c:349)]
fuse-ext2: opts.volname: [main (../../fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2.c:350)]
fuse-ext2: opts.options: (null) [main (../../fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2.c:351)]
fuse-ext2: parsed_options: allow_other,local,ro,fsname=/dev/disk1s2,fstypename=ext2,volname=disk1s2 [main (../../fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2.c:352)]
fuse-ext2: mounting read-only [main (../../fuse-ext2/fuse-ext2.c:368)]

...with nothing really happening, followed by it saying...

mount_fusefs: failed to mount /Volumes/fando@/dev/fuse0: Socket is not connected

Is there anyway I can mount an ext3 partition on OS 10.6 ?

As an alternative to MacFUSE and fuse-ext2, you can also try Sourceforge: Mac OS X Ext2 Filesystem.

Unfortunately, it appears the installer for Ext2 Filesystem isn't 10.6 ready yet.

It doesn't seem to install on Snow Leopard (now using 10.6.2).

Neither of these techniques seems to be able to work on Mac OS 10.6.

Does anyone know of any other techniques? I can't read any of my backups of important data on ext3 formatted HDs.

FWIW, I was just able to do this in OS X 10.6.2 via MacFUSE 2.1.5 (Beta) and the Fuse-ext2 0.0.7 build. I have not tried rw mode yet, but ro mode (with an iSCSI Initiated drive to boot) works great.

Can't mount rw

Folks-

I also have the same problem with:
MacFUSE 2.0.3.2
fuse-ext2-0.0.7

$ fuse-ext2 -o rw+ /dev/disk3s1 /Volumes/mnt
...
mount_fusefs: failed to mount /Volumes/mnt@/dev/fuse0: Socket is not connected

This happens even if I sudo the fuse-ext2 command.

Kernel log entries say this:
2/12/10 10:45:57 AM kernel MacFUSE: force ejecting (no response from user space 5)
2/12/10 10:45:57 AM KernelEventAgent[36] tid 00000000 received VQ_DEAD event (32)
2/12/10 10:45:57 AM kernel MacFUSE: user-space initialization failed (57)
2/12/10 10:45:57 AM kernel MacFUSE: user-space initialization failed (57)


Any help is much appreciated!

-Craig
