Mount ext4 on mac

I have OS X and arch on a dual boot and wanted to know if it's possible to mount an ext4 partition on a macbook?

If you mean in OS-X, then i dont think so. OS-X can only mount ext2/3. I'm sure someone will eventually get ext4 working, but right now its still a bit soon.

Well....the Ext2 driver for OSX has not gotten any dev attention in at least 2-3 years, IIRC-and it is buggy at best by all reports.  I wouldn't hold your breath.
