use of option auto=partition in devb-eide


I am a newbie to QNX.

I want to know the use of the auto=partition option while starting the devb-eide driver and how is it different from the option automount??


Take a look at in the helpviewer.

It explains the different between the two there.

Basically, auto=partition means QNX will look for hard drive partitions when looking for places to mount. If you use auto=none then QNX will only evaluate the hard drive as one single entity (ie no partitions).

The automount does what you’d expect. It tells QNX to specifically mount from a certain partition.
