pmount, drive_all scripts

January 26, 2010 — BarryK
Shinobar posted upgrades for these scripts to the Quirky 005 feedback thread. They are /usr/sbin/pmount and /usr/local/bin/drive_all.

There was a report on the 005 feedback thread about the CD tray closing too quickly, that this should have fixed. Also it adds locale support.

This is the original of the script that runs when a desktop drive icon is clicked on. Shinobar has made some improvements plus locale support. I had recently modified this script, so had to merge my recent changes with shinobar's script.


utf8 option on CDs

Thanks Barry for the update of locale support. As for the 'iocharset=utf8' option, it is needed for CD/DVDs burned by Windows. And it must be harmless for any CD/DVDs. Please take a concider.

Pmount & DF error
Username: WB7ODYFred
"I found an error that shows with Pmount and df commands (disk free). The internal computation of df command must use "sectors, heads, cylinders" instaead of number of sectors. The CFDISK command always shows the MAX number of cylinder, head, trac for the ending Sector Number. I will put up a report on the forum. I found this same error operation in Puppy Linux 3.0 [img][/img] Files listing cfdisk output in raw, secotrs, and table format. Pmount version 4.77 found in dpup 484 beta 3 iso disk.
