Default 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.
The command:

mount -t etx2fs /dev/partition /mounting/point

works perfectly.

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?

Thank you

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
