Who uses minix fs :) ?

That means a compile of e2fstools. Can you add the download of
uclibc to the ramdisk Makefile ?

I have compiled the latest version (yesterday), but it spews
some weird and other messages to stderr, and they are not logged.
Probably, I'll wait for the development to stabilize. Some time ago
i gave up on developing such complicated shell scripts. When they
work it's ok, but if something breaks, to debug them is a real hell.

Ok. I'll prefer ext2 with fsck. It is fast and doesn't waste the cpu and RAM.
