ext3-boot release 0.9.2

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Imported 1.02.07 changes
Added lots of missing symbolic links for busybox
Official ext3 support
You should be able to use an ext3 drive to boot now (untested)

http://www.filedropper.com/ext3-boot-092 (anyone else having problems uploading to mediafire tonight?)

Simple question: I am about to try out the ext3-boot.
Does it matter which firmware is actually running on the wdtv?

Neo:
thats fantastic regarding journaling
that means your drive should easily fix itself should there be issues.
i used ext2 cuz i thought journaling was still a no-no
and i thought that ext3 would require more cpu time.
perhaps i am wrong on that....
i know the box is idling lower without ntfs3g having to run

I like the fact that 'date' cmd now works :-)

And you are prompted for a login.

NTP doesn't seem to work for me though (using pool.ntp.org, will try other ntp servers when time permits).

That's really a problem with the wireless module driver taking too long to attach to the wireless network.

I'll address the issue with the next wireless-mod.app.bin package.

(Need to make a few changes--like change the device names to "eth%d" instead of "ra%d", "rausb%d", etc and add some usb VID/PID's to the Otus driver)
