    Hey, its me again
    i have SUSE and mac tiger on my macbook, i have a 20GB partition which has ext2 format, to share files between mac and linux, i succesfully changed permissions and mounted my volume in mac and linux
    but suddenly, i was in mac os and the kernel panic message appeared (mac's blue screen of death?), when i rebooted my partition disappeared, and i try to mount it with disk utility, but it doesnt do anything
    when i verify disk, it says: Verifying volume “UNTITLED”
    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit
    when i choose repair:

    Verify and Repair disk “UNTITLED”

    Yeah, kernel panics are fairly commonplace, if you're using this ext2fs implementation under Tiger. Check out the bug tracker, this is an ongoing issue.

    Try booting from a live Linux CD of some sort, and use the Linux fsck to clean up the ext2 volume.

    Because of the instability, it's best to avoid using ext2fs under Tiger except when you absolutely need it.

    For a shared partition, I might recommend ufs or even hfs+.
