Description of problem:
Redhat 7.0/7.1 in mount versions: 2.10r-5 and 2.11b-3 repectively, mount
doesn't honor the mode option. however, it does honor the umask option.
either the mode option needs to be fixed, or removed from the command and
Tested in Redhat 7.0/7.1 with the mount versions specified.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount /dev/fd0 -o mode=111 /mnt/floppy
Actual Results: tried with vfat disks only. ls -l /mnt/floppy shows all
files have mode 755 no matter what mode is specified.
workaround, use the umask option for mount.
this problem is also present in autofs. but i suspect that fixing mount
would fix autofs.
Still here with RH 7.2's mount-2.11g-5 package.
*** Bug 60548 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The current man page mentions nothing about the mode= option for fat/vfat
filesystems. Seems fixed.
