mount_std, mount_devfs, mount_fdescfs, mount_linprocfs, mount_procfs - mount "standard" file systems
mount_ fsname [-o options] "fs" mount_point
The mount_std utility is a generic mechanism for attaching standard file systems to the file system. The mount_std utility currently supports the following file systems: devfs, fdescfs, linprocfs and procfs. A standard file system is one which:
- accepts only the standard -o options "ro", "rw", "noexec", "nosuid", and "union".
- has a kernel file system module name the same as its user-visible name.
- requires no other special processing on the part of the mount_std utility.
The options are as follows:
|-o || Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of options. See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings. |
The mount_std utility examines its zeroth command-line argument (the name by which it was called) to determine the type of file system to be mounted. If it is called by a name which does not end in "_ fsname", mount_std will assume (for compatibility with mount(8)) that the zeroth argument contains only the name of the file system type. The mount_std utility is normally installed with appropriate links to commands for the distributed file systems which can be mounted in this way; for information on the function of each file system, see the manual page for that specific mount_ fsname utility.
Refer to the following manual pages for detailed information on these file system: devfs(5), fdescfs(5), linprocfs(5) and procfs(5).
| argv must end in _fsname || The mount_std utility was called with a zeroth argument of "mount_std". |
| %s file system not available || The specified file system type was not present in the kernel and no loadable module for it was found. |
