Topic: installing mount.app
started by: soinsg
Posted by soinsg on Dec. 16 2003,23:46I tried DSL and liked it, but I wanted something with gcc so I got < vector linux >. It has fluxbox and I wanted mount.app so I can get to my CD's and partitions easily.
So I went to freshmeat.net got the 2.7 source, configured, got libPropList, configured that and make/make install'd that. Then make make install'd mount.app. Now when I run mount.app from a shell it says it can't find libPropList.so.0, now what do I do? I used root to do the make install parts. I would paste the whole error message here but copy/paste in a shell doesn't seem to work while in a GUI.
Edit: Fixed one issue by accident. menu -> workspaces -> icons to restore minimised windows.

ldconfig -p | grep libPropList
If not, you need to find the Vector package with it included.
Posted by soinsg on Dec. 17 2003,09:16I was told by someone in #linuxhelp that I didn't need to reboot after making the lib. Anyway it seemed to work this morning. I also tried ldconfig as well, here is what I get:
libPropList.so.0 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libPropList.so.0
libPropList.so (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libPropList.so
How come I only see my floppy and CD-ROM in the dockapp? Is there something I need to add to the boot script so it can find my FAT32 and Linux partitions? I will read the docs on this later.
Posted by John on Dec. 19 2003,07:19You will probably have to edit /etc/fstab, you may want to boot DSL and then take a loot at that file to get an idea of the proper syntax to use.
Will be something like this:
/dev/hda2 /mnt/win vfat users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0
Posted by Gilbert Ashley on Dec. 22 2003,00:42Mount.app has a companion program called mount.conf that reads your /etc/fstab file. Edit fstab and then restart x in oreder for it to pick up the new entries.
