Ext3 on Mac OSX Lion

To be able to read ext3 formatted disks on Mac OSX Lion (10.7) you need to install a current FUSE implementation (macFUSE is discontinued, but there are several newer projects):

Then, you need to install the filesystem itself. The fuse-ext2 is just right (and supports ext3 as well):

fuse-ext2 Archive

After installing both packages you should be able to plug-in a ext3 formatted linux disk and it should show up in your finder (read-only).
