It needs to be able to see a USB 3.0 external HDD I'll plugin to my host and then I just need basic linux shit on it so I can use terminal to run fdisk and check partitions plus fsck to fix errors.

I believe the external HDD was initially formatted into eight EXT3 partitions (or maybe EXT2 but definitely not EXT4).

Thanks!

Code:
IPC1FrtSE contains a file system with errors, check forced.
IPC1FrtSE: Inode 82075 has compression flag set on filesystem without compression support.

IPC1FrtSE: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY.
    (i.e., without -a or -p options)


IPC2FrtNE primary superblock features different from backup, check forced.

        1803 inodes used (0.00%, out of 61166016)
          30 non-contiguous files (1.7%)

Linux, without hassle? Lol


There has to be a small VM someone has thrown together with just the basics so I don't have to go to the trouble of creating a new install.


Maybe I'll look for a backtrack image. It's not small but it's the only packaged VM that is coming to mind.

PITA getting it to run because it wouldn't boot with USB drivers for some reason. Fixed it, somehow. Kali comes with gparted so I'm just using that.

lol @ running it on an external usb drive


It plugs into my router for backup recordings from my IP cameras and also a partition for various manual backups I do.... oh, and it gives me some space for diversion files that is a script I run on the router for adblocking (like pihole).
