exfat support in Quirky

March 11, 2017 — BarryK
Some of the guys on the Puppy Forum have been discussing exfat support in Puppy:

And mavrothal has submitted patches to woof-CE:

Ok, exfat support is missing from Quirky, so I have also added it to the Quirky build system. Added 'exfat-utils' and 'exfat-fuse' DEB packages to the package list.
And modified these files:

/usr/local/pup_event/frontend_funcs, frontend_change, frontend_startup,

Note that /sbin/probepart did not need changing. The applets guess_fstype and blkid are part of busybox, and already support exat.
