Hi all happy penguinlovers.

I wrote, (just for fun) a fstab generator in c.
It depends on parted to detect and configure drives,
cdroms....


I just tired to rewrite fstab everytime a switched harddrives, och added a new cddrive.
It is realy beta. And without any license yet.

Please get it from my machine at
http://powerj.dyndns.org/index.php?page=projects
I realy want your feedback!
Sorry for my realy bad english.

My first comment woud be to ask if you could post the code in a code block:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# This is my program
... code is here ...

why they heck does this require gnu parted....

the way i would do it is this:

cat /proc/partitions

iterate through all of them (skipping ones with minor number 0) and asking where it should be mounted. you can also probably find out the partition type with the proc filesystem as well...just dont remember off hand from where...

PostPosted: Sun Sep 29, 2002 8:41 am    Post subject: Why i use libparted Reply with quote

i easy used libparted to detect what filesystem every partition used, or if it is a swap. /proc wont give it too me before i mount.

cat /proc/partitions did also detect extended paririons and tryed to mount it, trust me. I didn´t try to do some extra work.

Sorry you didn´t like it.

regards

I think it is a really good program. Keep writing free software, and ignore the dumb anonymous critics.
