Should /dev/pts and swap partition(s) be ignored in mount_common.lua?
I don't recall seeing them prior to DSL 3.1, but I had not been using the mount app so maybe they were always there.  I don't think there's any reason for them to be listed in the available mounts.

I was looking at the way the mount wm works to add my cdrom to be there regardless if it was in use or not (hd installed) and as of 2.4 I remember it only looks for any drive that listed inside the /mnt/ folder. Since the hd install kept wanting to mount the cd as /cdrom instead of /mnt/cdrom, it wouldn't add it to the mount wm. I just included it in a special file and made the script read that file as well (The script creates a file inside the tmp folder with the output of a grep command, listing the drives to create the mount wm.) A small static file with "/cdrom" and a change to the script to cat the file did what i needed to do.

So unless the mount script/mount wm were removed from 3.1 and fluxbox, then they shouldn't show on the wm at all.

I'm not sure exactly what you're saying, but it seems like you're telling me that I shouldn't be seeing these devices listed.

I haven't looked far into mount_common, so I'm not sure exactly what it's doing, but at first glance it appears that it's using everything that includes /dev/ and dropping everything that includes a comment.

Afaik he's talking about a traditional hd-install... cause the frugal mounts the dsl image on /cdrom by default.

I remember that a certain version of the 'newer' mount .lua tool does look in /mnt ...  using a symlink or editing fstab or editing the script itself were solutions.

Back at the topic at hand, I agree that those should be filtered out - my only guess is that the mount tool script was changed to not just look in /mnt

If this discussion is on the mount.lua in RC2, a release candidate issue, it has been tweaked for RC3.

Yes, I can see now that it is.  I just tried a clean 3.0.1 and did not see swap or pts in the list.

Sorry to trouble you =o)
