Does anyone know the file I would have to edit something like fstab. I have a module to mount Linux drives and I got my Linux drive mounted on my Mac, I just have to do the commands each time on boot, and it gets real annoying. Has anyone done anything similar to this? Let me know how you guys did it.

I dont think that's what he's looking for. To my knowledge MAC doesn't recognize ext3 partition by default (I mean not without 3rd Party software atleast). Whichever partitions are recognized are mounted automatically. If you're managing to mount it manually, you can automate that using automator workflow..... and it would be gr8 if you can share the process of mounting linux partitions

Sure, I'd be happy to.

Yes it is part of a 3rd party application called

ExtFSManager

I belive the link is here:

http://www.windowstracker.com/dyn/mo...619&vid=133497

Once you have the module installed, go to your terminal and type

mkdir /Volumes/Linux

Then Type:

sudo -s ( Type your root password )

Then Type:

mount_ext2 -o rdonly -x /dev/disk0s3 /Volumes/Linux

That should mount it. To make sure, type "cd /Volumes/Linux" and then type ls -l you should see the directories there.

To get it to show up in the GUI format in your finder select "Go" -> "Go To Folder" and type /Volumes/Linux

Then it will mount on your Desktop like your Mac HD and be avaiable through GUI but I need to automate this somehow.

Why dont you make a shell script and run it as a part of login programs. I had checked the /etc/fstab on MAC once and it mentioned that the file is garbage and dont use it kind of message.

Hi! This is a bit abandoned, but I've got a question... How can I mount it on write and read mode? Thanks!
