Is there a way to graft Startmount into a live CD? I got a message saying something like "startmount can not be used in a live environment, you must install Puppy to use it"
(Sorry, that is not verbatim, it was a couple of days ago)

I would like to remaster a live CD so that it will autodetect and automount all available HDDs and usb drives, and startmount looks promising if it can be built in.

Tested on a flash install of lupu-528.005.

Same test on Slacko-5.3.3-pae. It mounts at the first try.

/tmp/bootstsinit.log wrote:
First try: mount /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1
Second try: mount -t ext3 /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1
mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /mnt/sdd1 busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /mnt/sdd1

Great program.
Thank you for the effort.
Enjoy reading your coding.
Good sense of organization

Works under Slacko 5.3.3 on USB Pen_Drive.
Had to manually 'find' the script, and 'permission' it, then 'exec' it. OK!

Have re-written bootstsinit.log as a sand-box script
to be a wrapper for my own dev code:


# sand-box.sh
# idea from shinobar

echo "***  `date`  ***  my_bootstsinit.log " >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log

mkdir -p /mnt/sdd1

echo "First try: mount /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1" >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log

mount /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1 && echo "Success."  >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log || echo "Fail."  >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log

echo "Second try: mount -t ext3 /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1"  >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log

mount -t ext3 /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1 && echo "Success."  >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log || echo "Fail."  >> /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log

geany  /var/log/my_bootstsinit.log
