Description of problem:
This is what happens when i try to mount my other drive in fat32 format.
[root@localhost root]# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 -t vfat -o,w,umask=2220
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
or too many mounted file systems
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel is the latest 305
Steps to Reproduce:
1.type in mount command
Actual Results: gives an error
Expected Results: should mount the drive
Do you get any policy error messages?
not in the terminal window--up above you can see exactly what i get.
Do you want me to look in some log file?
Got it to work. Had to use this command-- mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 -t
vfat instead of what i used to have to use: mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
-t vfat -o,w,umask=2220.
I think this is just a case of the kernel being fussier about options
now. Particularly the -o, which is a null option
