MOUNT_REISERFS(8) MidnightBSD System Manager’s Manual MOUNT_REISERFS(8)

NAME

mount_reiserfs — mount a ReiserFS file system

SYNOPSIS

mount_reiserfs special node

DESCRIPTION

The mount_reiserfs utility attaches the ReiserFS file system residing on the device special to the global file system namespace at the location indicated by node.

This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time, but can be used by any user to mount a ReiserFS file system on any directory that they own (provided, of course, that they have appropriate access to the device that contains the file system).

EXAMPLES

To mount a ReiserFS volume located in /dev/ad1s1:

mount_reiserfs /dev/ad1s1 /mnt

SEE ALSO

mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

CAVEATS

This utility is primarily used for read access to a ReiserFS volume. Writing to a volume is currently unsupported.
