http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, HOST: WinXP pro Virtualization: VMWare workstation (ubuntu) for source build I have one dedicated vmware partition for source build. I have a slow system so I want to mount the vmware build partition from windows so that code walkthrough and study stuff can be done from windows using source insight and other similar tools without vmware. I attempted to install the EXT2IFS driver on windows and mount the vmdk as a virtual drive using vmware-mount.exe z: "D:/my_vmw_img/source.vmdk" but it dosent seem to work. Windows wont recognize the filesystem on Z partition. Has anyone tried to do this, please let me know. I am beginning to believe that it is not possible for EXT filesystem on windows. Thanks in advance, (HowTos)
