Description of problem:
when I try to mount VFAT partition with showexec=no option, I get message:

Jan 27 00:07:59 warp kernel: FAT: Unrecognized mount option
"showexec=no" or missing value

For example:
[root@warp mnt]# umount /mnt/win
[root@warp mnt]# mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/win -o showexec=no
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd1,
       or too many mounted file systems
[root@warp mnt]# mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/win
[root@warp mnt]# umount /mnt/win


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.10-1.741_FC3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
mount <DEVICE> <MOUNTPOINT> -o showexec=no

does it work if you pass -t vfat ?

not work together (-t vfat and -o showexec=no)
# mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/win -o showexec=no -t vfat
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd1,
       or too many mounted file systems
# mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/win  -t vfat

I update kernel to 2.6.10-1.766_FC3 but get same behaviour:
# mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/win -t vfat -o showexec=no
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd1,
       or too many mounted file systems

in /var/log/messages:
Feb 16 12:45:27 warp kernel: FAT: Unrecognized mount option "showexec=no" or
missing value

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 20:17:08 UTC
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

Comment 7 Jeff Moyer 2005-10-28 01:31:45 UTC
It seems that you need not specify an argument for the showexec mount option. 
So, you can get away with:

mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/win -o showexec

and that will do what you want (I believe).  Please give it a try.
