pfs_mount

I notice in some replies you advise putting the following line in /etc/pfs_fstab:
/dev/dsk/cxtxdx /cdrom pfs-rripp xlat=unix0

and further down to run the command
/usr/sbin/pfs_mount -t rrip -x unix /dev/rdsk/cxtxdx /cdrom

So the pfs_fstab contains the block device but you run the pfs_mount command with the character device?

TIA

Re: pfs_mount

Hi Francoise,

That's right, /etc/pfs_fstab needs the block device and pfs_mount needs the character device.

According to the man page for pfs_mount, using a block device isn't supported.

Best regards,

Dan
