    Need the ext2 module (to install linux)

    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to install linux on my droid using crabs' instructions (either ubuntu or debian). I've got a chevyno1 kernel installed but I can't find his ext2 module. Links on the instructions are broken. Anyone know of an updated link? Sorry to start a new thread but it seems like those threads are a bit stale.

    Or if there's a better/newer/easier way to install linux that would be great.

    Much obliged

    Yeah, we usually don't like double posts, but you're right that thread is a little stale. Maybe go and report it to be removed and we'll keep your discussion here.

    Well since the links got updated either chevy1's updated kernels have the ext2 built in (more likely) or he stopped supporting it. Have you tried without having to install that module?
    -or-
    there is also other hope as crab also said "any other kernel with ext2 support". And p3droid's kernels have that, plus he also has the ext2/3/4 module still alive and well on his site:

    P3Droid Kernels

    Just make sure you use one of p3's Froyo kernels as he still has a few eclair ones posted.

    good luck

    Thanks for the response. I'll see if I can get this working and will post my results, if successful.
