Thread: OpenBSD to view ext2

    OpenBSD to view ext2

    I've embarked on the OpenBSD train finally, but I have a little problem.

    I have 2 hard disks:
    One for OpenBSD and the other is on ext2 and is used to hold data. I want to make the ext2 disk visible to OpenBSD, but can't:

    gaspar# mount -t ext2fs /dev/wd1b /mnt/temp
    mount_ext2fs: /dev/wd1b on /mnt/temp: Device not configured

    During the installation, I had skipped the disklabel process for my secon drive, because I thought I could mount it after the installation.

    Does anybody have an idea of how I can make it visible to OpenBSD?

    Why wd1b? Is it the 2nd partition on the 2nd physical hard drive?

    This might come in handy

    Re:OpenBSD to view ext2

    /dev/wd1a is Linux swap and /dev/wd1b is data.

    I don't see how the URL you sent me can help me. Perhaps my explanation was not clear.

    I have 2 hard drives:
    I erased one of them to install OpenBSD and I left the 2nd one alone. The 2nd one was previously used as a drive to have my Linux swap and my user's home directory when Linux was installed in the first drive.

    So now I want to mount the 2nd drive so that I can re-use my data, but the 2nd drive's filesystem is ext2.

    Is it possible?
    Thanks Ash and all.

    Kozumo: Yes it's possible. Use disklabel to find the exact device of your Linux data partition, then mount it with the command you had in your initial post.

    Ok Vince helped me solve my prob, so I will say this:

    GNUVINCE 0WNZ0RZ J00 411!!!!

    here's how Vince made it work:

    disklabel wd1
    size offset fstype [fsize bsize cpg]
    c: 40031712 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 39713)
    i: 249921 63 unknown # (Cyl. 0*- 247)
    j: 39781728 249984 ext2fs # (Cyl. 248 - 39713)

    mount -t ext2fs /dev/wd1j /mnt

    and it works!

    Well I almost had it ... thought it was a wrong device :P.
