I received my Packet Squirrel on Monday, and being a Linux user I was happy to see that the squirrel supported USB drives formatted using EXT4. However when I attempted to try the default tcpdump payload with an EXT4 formatted drive it would not work. When booted with the switch in position 1 and the EXT4 USB drive inserted I would get a series of Blue/Red/Green lights flashing and had to power down the squirrel. When rebooted into Arming mode I tried to mount the USB device, and it provided an error that it was not a properly formatted NTFS file system. This was at the shell using 'mount /dev/sda1 /mnt'. I tried with multiple cleanly formatted EXT4 drives of various sizes. After formatting the drives to NTFS they all mounted properly and the tcpdump attack worked correctly. The same thing happened when trying to upgrade the firmware. The firmware update would not load on an EXT4 drive, however when using NTFS the firmware update automatically updated on boot.
