I have Solaris 10 installed on computer and I have USB flash drive with ext2fs partition. I want to mount flash drive and do this: 1) Download FSWpart and FSWfsmisc packages 2) Install:

root~#gzcat FSWpart.tar.gz | tar xvf -

root~#gzcat FSWfsmisc.tar.gz | tar xvf -

root~#pkgadd -d . FSWpart

root~#pkgadd -d . FSWfsmisc

3) Run prtpart util 4) And mount:

root~#mount -F ext2fs /dev/dsk/c1d0p3 /mnt/usb

After that I can see file-tree in /mnt/usb, but it mounted only as read-only. May be anybody know, other way to mount ext2 in Solaris whit read-write mode?

maybe you need to copy the files from /mnt/usb and then extract them?

root~#mount -F ext2fs /dev/dsk/c1d0p3 /mnt/usb
root~#mkdir /tmp/patch 
root~#cp /mnt/usb/FSWpart.tar.gz /mnt/usb/FSWfsmisc.tar.gz /tmp/patch
root~#cd /tmp/patch 
root~#gzcat FSWpart.tar.gz | tar xvf -
root~#gzcat FSWfsmisc.tar.gz | tar xvf -
root~#pkgadd -d . FSWpart
root~#pkgadd -d . FSWfsmisc
