Are people actually using the MSDOS filesystem with success on
netbsd-current? Every time I have tried it wedges my system. I used
to get `mount: Invalid argument' and have to run mount_msdos by hand
(which hung the system). I rebuilt the whole system and kernel just
yesterday or the day before, and last time I tried to mount an MSDOS
filesystem, the machine wedged.
The partition I tried to day was this (aha1542 scsi ctlr; 60MB DOS
partition of 1.2GB scsi1 disk):
/dev/sd0a /c msdos rw,noauto 0 0
I have tried /dev/fd0 in the past and gotten wedged as well (I am
loathe to try it now just for completeness of information since I
really expect to have to hit the big red button).
Am I the only one having these problems?
This is my kernel configuration:
# BAALPERAZIM -- Roland's 486 box
# Architecture and kernel name.
# CPU types to support. This means this kernel will bomb on a 386.
# Eastern Time
timezone 5 dst
# Estimated number of users; used in calculations for ENFILE limit.
# Paging of processes, and caching vnodes and devices.
# Do IP and forward packets.
# Do NFS in both directions.
# Make ktrace(1) work.
# Named pipes.
# Process accounting.
# Loadable kernel modules
# Potentially useful compatibility.
# Hooks for X server and allow non-superuser to do TIOCCONS.
# File systems.
options FASTLINKS # Fast symlinks in ffs.
# Anonymous VM filesystem.
# ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem; enable this when I have a driver for my CD drive.
# Generic SCSI support.
# Kernel debugger (minimally useful without -g).
# Invoked by C-M-ESC on console, or F12 in X.
# Enable setuid shell scripts; use /dev/fd kludge, makes them closer to secure.
# Omit nops at various places in the code.
# This is a good thing to try removing if bizarre lossage occurs.
# Temporarily needed for big kernels:

# wd0 means wd0b and sd0 means sd0b; 0,4 is wd0e.
