Description Ian Walker 2005-10-10 19:10:17 UTC
Cannot mount a FAT disk on USB Iomega Zip750 drive as root. Get "permission
denied" and later "Resource temporarily unavailable".  Also, devfs (??)
seems to have found a partition inside of a partition (/dev/da1s4s4).


How-To-Repeat: Boot system with Zip750 plugged in, su to root.
1) ll /dev/da1* shows da1, da1s4, and da1s4s4
2) "mount_msdosfs /dev/da1s4 /mnt" (as root) gives "Permission denied"
3) After 30 seconds or so, mount switches to "Resource temporarily unavailable"

State Changed
From-To: open->feedback

So you still own that device and could test whether it works properly under 
FreeBSD 7.x or even better yet FreeBSD 8.x?

This falls under the "Holy crap. Are you kidding?" heading. I think I
stopped using Zip drives around the time it stopped working on BSD. Sorry :(

I have to say, it is good to know that someone will always get around to
fixing bugs...even if it is five years later.
