Right now, when I want to read the contents of a CD or a floppy I have
to mount the corresponding directory (/cdrom in my machine) manually. I
would like the system to configure the mount point automatically when I
try to read or write the contents of that directory.
I have scanned the file /etc/inetd.conf and I have found the following
#mountd/1 dgram rpc/udp wait root /usr/sbin/tcpd
Next, I have looked for the daemon "/usr/sbin/rpc.mountd" but it is not
installed in my system:
cambados# ls -lsia /usr/sbin/rpc*
41111 10 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9420 Feb 13 1999
41116 14 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12988 Feb 13 1999
41112 8 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7836 Feb 13 1999
41115 6 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5996 Feb 13 1999
As in the case of "telnetd" I have looked for the package "mountd" in
the CDs of the distribution, but <<surprisingly>> there was not any
package with that name.
My questions are:
* What do I need?
* What about the daemon "mountd"?
My system is a Linux Debian 2.1 running on an AMD K6-III. If the
following information is useful for you, here it is:
cambados# dpkg --list *mount*
