Bug#497914: [busybox] busybox mount command refuse to mount with "-t auto" and "-t squashfs"
--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I'm having two problems with busybox 1:1.10.2-1 and 'mount' command. First of
all, if i try to mount a device with "-t auto"
mount -t auto /dev/hdc /mnt
mount: No such device
The same problem occurs if I simply type "mount /dev/hdc /mnt"
I think the problem is that mount commands believes that the filesystem is
called "auto", but i'm not sure. I've tried to mount this device setting the
proper filesystem (mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt), and it works perfectly.
The other problem (i'm not sure if there is this is related to the first one),
is that I'm not able to mount squash filesystem ( it seems to be same problem
as 475783, but i'm not using live-initramfs package ). In this case,
specifying the filesystem to mount doesn't work.
mount -t squashfs -o loop /image.squashfs /target
mount: Block device required
Both problems ("-t auto" and "-t squashfs") aren't in etch's busybox so I
think it could be a bug in busybox' mount or perhaps a regression.
