Re: Where is the vfat, dos support in 2.0.34 ????
You know Robert, you seem to be experiencing the exact same problems I've been that
I've overcome in the past 2 days with my hamm install. I posted to the list about this
specific filesystem support thing in the past 48 hours or so and got a ton of replies.
You need to enable the 'nls' (native languages support) option during make config,
make menuconfig, whatever and then all the msdos, vfat etc. filesystems will magically
appear. I think they should more clearly label this by making all of these a sub-group
of nls and using the '------>' that they do with the other sub-groups, so that you
know it leads to more options.
