Mounting ext2 partitions seems to fail
I have a fresh installation of FreeBSD 7.2 on my box.
I am simply trying to mount the ext2 partitions on an hard drive.
The hard drive is recognized, the partitions and the file system as well.
mount -t etx2fs /dev/partition /mounting/point
df -h indicates that the partition is mounted and ready to use then.
But... the mounting point is then a file and not a folder anymore!
So I can not do anything with it more or less.
the command ls -al returns a "bad file descriptor" error.
I tried to umount it and it appears as a folder again.
Does anyone know why this is happening?

Hello, try this:
fetch http://pflog.net/~floyd/ext2fs.diff kldunload ext2fs cd /usr/src/sys/gnu/fs patch < /root/ext2fs.diff cd /usr/src/sys/modules/ext2fs/ make depend make obj make make install make load
