mount vfat or HPFS as read/write?

Post by Chung-Yen Cha » Sat, 21 Sep 1996 04:00:00



Hi,
        Is there any new kernel which can mount vfat for Win 95 and HPFS
for OS/2 as a read/write partition? I have kernel-1.3.97 but it only
mounts them as read-only partition. I want to be able to write to these
partitions so I can share information among all my three OS's. Is it
possible to do so? Thanks for any help.

Well, the 2.0.x kernels will let you use VFAT r/w, but I think HPFS is still
read only.

There is another option...

There is a port of ext2fs to OS/2 available. It doesn't handle
extended attributes, but for a data partition...

1. Is mounting HPFS-os/2 partition read/write now possible??



As of 1.3.24, no.  I'm working on it though........

(Got it about half done.  So far, I haven't released any code, because its
nowhere near functional yet.  But keep posted.....)
