After the recent update in testing, mount is behaving differently (for
me). My /etc/fstab has the following lines:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
/dev/hda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda8 none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /floppy auto defaults,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 0 1
/dev/hda6 /home/software ext3 defaults 0 1
/dev/hda1 /dosc vfat defaults
/dev/hda5 /dosd vfat defaults
As a regular user, I could traverse the directories under /dosc and
/dosd. Under the new version, the directory is mounted with no execute
permission for group and others. I tried mounting with a different gid
value, but could not succeed in mounting /dosd as rwxr-xr-x. How can I
get that behaviour?
