how to mount ext2 / ext3 filesystems under Windows?

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

I needed to mount an ext3 filesystem in my windows, in order to share some files (my development scripts and databases) from my Windows setup and my Debian install.

Falko Timme has presented us another great tutorial about this:

Debian Etch “io scheduler cfq registered (default)”

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

I am installing a Debian 4.0 Etch into my notebook, and it hung loading “io scheduler cfq registered (default)”.

The solution was to type after boot: “install noapic acpi=off fb=false”  without quotes, and it then started installing the system.

Just for reference, I found this tip at LinuxQuestions. Thanks, guys!
