Fuse mounting question
Hello again. I'm still sorting out various mounting issues with my FreeBSD 8.2 setup. My latest issue with with /dev/fuse.
I have three non-BSD partitions within my computer, all of them are NTFS (Windows XP). I can mount them using Dolphin. After they are mounted, they appear like this in df:
/dev/fuse0 54420152 37130452 17289700 68% /media/WinXP /dev/fuse1 76895088 22842292 54052796 30% /media/filz /dev/fuse2 76895088 22842292 54052796 30% /media/filz-1 /dev/fuse3 78146708 40807612 37339096 52% /media/vee
Anyway, those partitions also have labels in /dev, with names like ad0s1. I attempted to mount the WinXP partition by mounting /dev/ad0s1 to a prepared mount point, but it failed. In fact, the only place I can mount these partitions is in the /media directory, according to the whim of fuse.
Simply put, I would rather mount these partitions the old-fashioned way, with either a mount command or the fstab. I do not want to be restricted to fuse. Furthermore, fuse only appears to work in conjunction with Dolphin, and I generally prefer to use a lighter-weight file cruncher like xfe or Midnight Commander. Dolphin is effective and nice looking, but personally I prefer a simpler display.
Can anyone give me any pointers on how to, essentially, bypass or override fuse?
As I've said elsewhere, and if it matters, my computer is running PC-BSD 8.2, which is essentially FreeBSD 8.2 with some added bells and whistles. And I'm beginning to find some of those bells and whistles annoying...
Thanks in advance,
