I'm adding an external USB HD to my MBWE. I formatted the drive as XFS (which appeared to be the native filesystem) using my PC and gparted. However, the drive does not mount and I get an error message "ufsd: failed to mount sdb1" and "XFS: unknown mount option [gid]. I have not been able to find any solution to this. I do not want FAT32 or NTFS on this drive. The MBWE is also unmodified (as yet) other than to enable SSH. If XFS is not the way to go, what is a recommended filesystem (other than an MS one, as previously stated)? Thank you.
ext3 is recommended by 4 out of 5 dentists!
Right, so I format the disk with ext3 and now the MBWE refuses to mount with a [gid=1000] error (same set of errors as with xfs). Didn't work for ext2 either. What is up with this busybox implementation and recognising a filesystem that is not MS? I created the partition with both gparted and with fdisk/mkfs internal to the MBWE.
Well I would love to help more but I have a bluering that just work =). Try creating a new group and giving it the gid of 1000.
