That seems low considering some might choose the print option. 30-40 would seem better imo.

Code: Select all

NOAUTO

Prevents the system from mounting any devices during startup. Useful for disabling access to your partitions by unprivileged users, as only root has rights to mount internal volumes.
Suppose it's purely academic now, but you could have added something to the effect that system appliications will not be able to access unmounted volumes.

However IMHO the neater and still applicable solution would be the programming one (after ascertaining there is no file system on '/mnt/sdxy'): This operation requires access to volume holding 'porteus' directory. Please mount /dev/sdxy on /mnt/sdxy. Continue? | Quit?

Understood. I will review the PSC code and add checks for a mounted files system. Thanks.
