In PCLinux, the partition tool is acting funny.
1. Since yesterday I do not see a button to mount the partition.
2. Since yesterday, on trying to save the changes to fstab, it tells me to format a FAT partition which is already formatted and loaded with data.
I can use the mount command, and all partitions and data within are accessible. Running dosfsck on the troubling partition shows no errors. I emphasis the "since yesterday" part since it worked fine till then, and there have been no improper shutdowns or unclean mountings in the meantime.
What is going on?
