Description Steve Wills 1998-11-20 11:36:01 UTC
If you have an existing fat 32 (might work with other dos
partitions) and try to make a mount point for it in disk
druid, it does not save the change to /etc/fstab. 5.1 did

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-11-20 18:37:59 UTC
I have verified this to be a bug. It has been assigned to a developer.

I did a 5.2 install to a machine that currently has a FAT32 partition
on it and in diskdruid chose to mount the partition to /dos. When the
machine rebooted the entry was not added to the /etc/fstab file.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-03-18 15:33:59 UTC
Matt, has this been fixed?

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-03-29 19:33:59 UTC
*** Bug 1807 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

     If you have a Win95 Fat32 partition and you use Disk
Druid to create a mount point, it will create the directory,
but it won't automount it on bootup and it will not place it
in the /etc/fstab file.

This is fixed in the current installer.
