Re: Re: Strange ownership when mounting a MINIX floppy

Hi all,

After doing:

prompt$ superformat /dev/fd0 hd
prompt$ /sbin/mkfs -t minix /dev/fd0
prompt$ mount /floppy
prompt$ ls -la /floppy

drwxr-xr-x  2  francesc 232   4096 Set 8 10:10 .
drwxr-xr-x  3  root     root  4096 Set 8 10:10 ..

Where does gid 232 come from?

Is there a GID 232 on your system?  What group ID is the floppy mounted

Obviously not, that's the reason of my surprise. Some days ago I soved the problem.
The guid should be francesc (1000 as per Debiuan policy) but I supose minixfs uses
only 8 bits for guid. That is 1000 % 256 = 232 which is a numeric guid unknown by the system.
This means that I cannot use minix for floppies, which I used to, but ext2.
