Yeah... back on topic? Please. Still don't know how I'm going to download that driver.

yeah, in hindsight I've over-reacted as well. I'll delete my old post to save dragging this out further smile.gif

LiveCD, Windows, Lynx CLI browser, USB, those are all viable options. You can mount your windows partitions in linux, so you can always download in windows.

Oh well that's true I might be able to although I was having some trouble with that the other day it wouldn't recognize by linux partitions in Win 7 and in Win 8 I couldn't get permission to my windows 7 or linux partitions so I'll look again. Any ideas on how to control the fan (in Ubuntu for now as I need to keep folding this bigadv) I think there's a way using lm_sensors but I'm unsure

Windows will never be able to recognize linux partitions, you have to be in lnux and mount windows partitions to access windows files.

There's read/write support for ext2/3 and read support for ext4 through Ext2Fsd.

Never say never, it's a bad word to throw around.

trusay. I used to carry a 16GB memory stick around formatted in ext2 with a tiny FAT32 partition just large enough for a Windows ext2 driver (in case I needed to read the data on someone elses PC). I was always impressed with just how well those drivers worked.

Though for some reason I couldn't get ext4 read working when I last tried (which admittedly was a long time ago now), but I have been assured by others that it does.

EXT2 and EXT3 are obsolete IMO, now that it's EXT4 and I didn't know about EXT4 read, I'm guessing it's one of the very new features.

Yet plenty of people still use them tongue.gif But I was just pointing out, it is possible to read/write ext. Since you specifically said "Windows will never be able to recognize Linux partitions" Which it can recognize them, writes to most of them. And Windows will likely be able to write to Ext4 with time. And there's plenty of other tools to adds the ext drivers, so if Ext2Fsd doesn't become live again, someone else will figure it out.
