This is old, but still would be help to new Hurd users. The only blocksize supported is 4096. Do "mkfs.ext2 -b 4096 /target/location" and then you can mount it as "settrans -ca /mount/point /hurd/ext2fs /target/location"

thomas@leibniz:/var/tmp $ settrans -ac image0 /hurd/ext2fs `pwd`/image0.img
settrans: /hurd/ext2fs: Translator died
thomas@leibniz:/var/tmp $ settrans -ac image0 /hurd/ext2fs.static `pwd`/image0.img
ext2fs: /var/tmp/image0.img: panic: disk_cache_init: Block size 1024 != vm_page_size 4096
settrans: /hurd/ext2fs.static: Translator died

Why do errors on show up with ext2fs.static?
