Hmmm… I don’t see a fstab file in nto, nor is /etc/fstab listed
in the utilities reference:

But i am damn sure there sure is provision for one… I issued a command (i
am not sure which) and it gave me some message some part of which said “entry
not listed in fstab”…

also if there is no such file or a file that’s not doing job of fstab… then
how do clicking /fs in photon file manager automounts the disks… it must be
picking it up from somewhere… though we dont know for sure

I’ll try putting up same linux type entries and try whether my “mount
/dev/fd0” works or not

The filesystems in nto seems to be the most different thing from qnx
or unix.

Its infact an entirely different beast… read the readme that qnx offers you
at installation screen… it describes a good deal about how the boot
sequence mounts it drives… Anyway I believe mounting nfs from “mount” is no
differnt from mounting via fs-nfs2. actually you are directly invoking the
nfs driver in second case, while in first case mount invokes it for you (as
it does when you mount any other filesystem ie fs-cd for cd fs-dos for dos
fs-blah for blah blah fs :wink: )


The mount command use' or reference page implies it can do nfs, but apparently you have to use fs-nfs2 instead. Utilities like df’ don’t seem to notice mounted nfs filesystems anymore. Nor
do they appear in /fs.

you can mount them anywhere… /fs is apparently just a convention as is /mnt
in linux

I am still playing with the September release, so I might be outdated.

Nope… this bit hasn’t changed in jan release… though jan release is a
hell lot better than the sept release i can say… the best getting still
better… try to get the jan release, being bale to listen to streaming mp3
on local intranet is lot stress relieving while screwing up this OS :slight_smile:
