    I'm currently using "Tomato v1.28.0000 MIPSR2-109 K26 USB BTgui-VPN". I'm trying to mount an xfs external drive. I can load xfs.ko from extra in the kernel, but if I try to mount it (mount -t xfs /dev/sdb1 /tmp/mnt/mydrive), the only output I get is this message: "mount: mounting /dev/sdb1 on mydrive/ failed: Invalid argument".

    mount is provided by busybox and I suspect it might not have support for xfs ?

    I see no package in optware related to xfs that could provide a mount.xfs .

    Does anyone have an idea on how I can mount an xfs file system ?

    I recall reading somewhere that XFS volumes formatted with different versions of XFS might have issues. Not sure if that's your problem however.
