Getting the latest sources
To grab the latest and greatest copy of the sources just type:
svn checkout http://libext2fs-wii.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
Compiling and Installing
make make install # or 'sudo make install' if you aren't root.
To compile a debug version with a console print out of the debug information, type:
make debug # or 'sudo make debug' if you aren't root.
Related routines can be accessed by adding the following line to your source file(s).
When compiling you must also link against libext2fs. To do this, add -lext2fs to the LIBS section of your application Makefile; for example:
LIBS := -lwiiuse -lbte -lext2fs -lfat -logc -lm
For a more practical example of using libext2fs in your application, see it's implementation in WiiXplorer.
