Does Seagate Freeagent 2 work with linux?
Can you format the drive (to anything linux-ish except reiser****System... I have learnt my lesson now) without anything happening?

I accidentally placed my elbow on my old hard drive and now it's bust. I was thinking of getting myself a proper 1 TB drive and thought the freeagent seemed perfect.

To anyone else wondering... yes!

It does work in 9.04 out of the box without any hazzle. You CAN format it to Ext2 (and probably other FS as well, but I think Ext2 is stable and well for a one TB external drive) without things going haywire.

Yeah. It worked with linux. Hope you can run it without any issue. Thanks for asking
