mount_puffs -- helper utility for mounting puffs/refuse file systems
mount_puffs [-o options] program[#source] mount_point
The mount_puffs utility simply executes the given program, allowing to mount puffs(4) and refuse(3) based file systems via mount -a or the fstab(5) file. This command is usually only executed by mount(8), as users can directly execute file servers to mount them. The program parameter is either the path to the file server or the file name of it. In the latter case the program is searched in the PATH variable. The source parameter, when specified, will be passed to the program as its first non-option argu- ment, with mount_point being the second one. The options are as follows: -o Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma sepa- rated string of options. They are passed to the program without any modifications except for getargs, which is typically used by mount -vv. When there is getargs in the list, mount_puffs dis- cards all the other options and prints the kernel arguments for a puffs(4) file system already mounted at mount_point.
Mount dmesgfs at /dmesg: # mount_puffs dmesgfs /dmesg Or in fstab(5): dmesgfs /dmesg puffs rw These are equivalent to: # dmesgfs /dmesg Mount /usr/bin/rot13fs for /home/foo at /mnt/rot13 with option -o rdonly: # mount_puffs -o rdonly /usr/bin/rot13fs#/home/foo /mnt/rot13 Or in fstab(5): /usr/bin/rot13fs#/home/foo /mnt/rot13 puffs rdonly These are equivalent to: # /usr/bin/rot13fs -o rdonly /home/foo /mnt/rot13
