  Try installing e2fsprogs from the repository.maemo.org bora free
repo.  Bash is a little tougher because it comes from a debian repo
and expects their environment; you can find it here:
 For those interested this has the full pool of debian packages in
armel format.  Unfortunately, as soon as you try to install things
you'll run into problems with dependencies.  Bash is easier as it's
statically linked so I just did a dpkg -X
bash-static_3.1dfsg-8_armel.deb . in a temporary directory and then
copied the executable to /bin/bash.  That way it doesn't try and run
the install scripts which error out.  There's nothing critical to
install but the binary.
