Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159126
Firstboot: Module to add other OS partitions' entry to fstab
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
I've developed a firstboot python module which can
detect other OS(currently only windows) partitions and
add entries to the fstab. It also creates a user group
which has access to those partitions.
The version of firstboot is 1.3.33-2.
Also, I've modified create_user.py file so that, the new user being created
gets added to the new user user group created by the above module. (Obviously,
create_user.py module must be run after the above new module).
I don't know how to attach multiple files in this bugzilla form. So, I'm
sending this create_user.py in the next mail

Modified Create User Python Module
Thank you for the patch. At this time, editing /etc/fstab to add partitions for
other operating systems should be getting handled by HAL. See the man page for
fstab-sync for more information on this. If it is not happening, this is a
problem with HAL and should be filed as a bug against that component.
