bongs, if you would be so kind, could you outline the steps to get this working with LGB? i've got it set up fine in CM7 with raidzero's 1200 kernal and the 99complete script above, but have had no success at all with LGB no matter what i've tried, running the same kernal.
what kernal is working with Link2SD in LGB, and what if any additional modules or scripts in init.d did you have to add to get it to work?
i asked on the Liquid forums, but just got a second hand reply from Liquid that "Liquids said that he does not include those modules with his kernel". seems odd that a ROM based on CM7 with a kernal that works in CM7 setup would give me such fits, but it is. :(
bums me out because in every other way i think the latest LGB is hands down the smoothest GB ROM my droid has run, but i got addicted to L2SD with CM7 and now i'm in a funk.
Okay I think you need to go to the thread on xda by dev bakpinar.
search in thread for ext2.ko.zip
dl that and there should be the steps in that same post, i believe you will unzip it on the sd then take the script that is within the folder and copy it over to /system/lib/modules/ set permissions like the rest of the scripts in the modules folder maybe rw-r--r-- but check first on thread
open terminal and run following shell commands
I am pretty sure that was the route I took.
In PE I never had to do that step, not sure why exactly
hope that works and just post if you run into any issues
but you shouldn't need the 99 at all regardless of what rom it was built or based on

thanks a lot, for me, i needed to use the ext2.ko module to get link2sd working on motodroid with project elite 5.0.2 and stock kernel it comes with. not using deprimed. very smooth, extremely fast. thanks again.

Not sure if it is up on the market but it is up on the apps thread on xda.
and if you are a registered member and like his app, drop the man a thanks
always makes a person feel good
if you still can't get it to work then i found this might work for you
change the mounting directory in /etc/init.d/05mountsd to "/data/sdext2"
When I flash a new update to a rom do I need to unmount all of the apps if I'm using link2sd as I'm using primes kernel and not the stock one for tbe added speed and support.

Why when compcache is enable do you think I am unable to see the apps on the partition? They don't even show up in the link2sd app list. When I shut off compcache everything is back to the way it was before.
I haven't had that happen but maybe it is causing the ext not to mount after boot and you just need a hot reboot and then they will show up. I suggest you try that first.
Also, did you have compcache running when you began link app the first time?
If not maybe you need to so that it will recognize what space compcache is using and therefore run a different mount script since it has 4 different scripting attempts.
So my Droid broke and I just got my "new" (refurb) Droid from Asurion and I was setting everything up again. I decided to go with ext3 and did things a little differently this time around and wanted give a quick tutorial to set it up. I hit some bumps along the way that I'll mention but I think I solved the problems so maybe it can help out other people experiencing the same issues.
So before anyone starts you have to have your partitions set up, if you don't know how to do it see my OP.
Install CM7 and a kernel that supports ext3 (or ext2 or ext4 or whatever you chose for your partition, I am using Prime's latest deprimed kernel and it should support them all). Delete the 05mountsd script from /system/etc/init.d (This script mounts the sdext partition in a way that is used by firerat's script but it is different than the link2sd method and can mess things up. You can delete it with root explorer or some other method after the rom is installed or you can use winrar to delete it from the update.zip before installing with rom manager).
Install and run link2sd it should ask you what type of partition you have so select what partition type you used (in my case it was ext3). It should install its own mountsd script and will tell you to reboot.
Now you should be able to use link2sd to move apps to your ext partition, woo hoo! However, remember the bump I mentioned....
After I linked a whole bunch of apps and rebooted all of a sudden my linked apps weren't showing up, but link2sd still showed that I had a 2nd partition that was ~50% full, wtf? So then I remembered my old 99complete script, but I don't need the extra stuff because link2sd is mounting the sdcard, I just need the stuff that makes it sync my apps so I deleted everything except:
setprop lk.filesystem.ready 1;
and put the 99complete script into /system/etc/init.d and rebooted and it now it seems to work much better (there is a zip attached with this script in it, not an installable zip just a regular zip file).
Occasionally it still messes up but it seems to happen if I quickly start to try doing stuff as soon as the phone boots, if it messes up I just reboot and give it a few seconds before I start messing with it and all of my apps show up. Hopefully this will help people that are having problems.
