Mount a ext4 USB drive?

I recently installed Merlin's ASUS WRT firmware, and wanted to install Skynet and Diversion.

The Skynet developer recommends ext4, and Diversion requires it.



Now, I can only get Skynet to recognize the USB drive and work with FAT32.

As soon as I pop in a ext4 drive, the router's WebGUI says it it's unmounted. And Skynet and Diversion do not detect it.



What am I missing here? Do I somehow mount it manually through the terminal?

Additional info:
RT-AC5300
Firmware Version: 384.8_2

Try this method. You may also need to set your USB port mode to 2.0 first (via Administration> System)
