Auto Mounting Filesystems
Auto Mounting Filesystem
The automounter package [automounter-c3000_0.3_arm.ipk] will install mntloop and the usb automounter.
mntloop will create new loop devices and check /etc/fstab at bootup time and mount all loop devices it can find there unless they are already mounted or commented out. The Linux boot process will mount entries in /etc/fstab by default, but it can only mount 2 loop partitions because there are only that many default loop devices, so any additional entries in /etc/fstab will fail to mount. mntloop will fix that.
The USB automounter uses the hotplug mechanism and automatically mounts any USB disk that gets plugged in. It also adds appropriate entries into /etc/fstab as well and can handle multiple USB disk being plugged in through a hub.
