Applications installed on strata can not see mounted partitions to bedrock


Hi

I have some ntfs drives which have mounted to Debian as hijacked distro using fstab entries. These drives mounted to bedrock without problem and I can see these folders in application installed in Debian. Arch has been fetched as another strata to bedrock. There is a problem with application which I have installed on Arch. They can't see root tree of bedrock in open/save dialog and as result I can not use contents of these drives in Arch applications.
I tried to symlink these mounted drives to /bedrock/strata/arch/ but those symlinks are not visible for Arch applications too.

Thank you in advance and sorry for my english.

Edit: I mounted these drives to sub-directories of my home folder and now they are all visible for all strata.

It sounds like you had Debian mount things to a local path, so that only Debian processes could see it at that path. If you want processes from all strata to see the mount, the mount point needs to be global. You can either move the mount to somewhere that's already global (such as your home directory, which is apparently what you did), or configure Bedrock to make the desired mount point path global.

You might be a bit confused about the following concepts:
  • There is nothing special about the hijack stratum. After the install, it's just another stratum.
  • Local vs global file paths.
  • The root directory is a local path.

If you have not yet already done so, consider going through:

If you have already gone through these, consider doing so again with the recent event in mind with an eye on the local vs global concept.

Thank you Sir.

I had read instructions and basic usages pages but hadn't pay attention to global and local path part. Anyway I decided to keep my ntfs drives mounted in home directory which is global. Many thanks for your amazing work on Bedrock. Keep up the great work.

I found out that NTFS partitions should be mounted as ntfs-3g in fstab. If ntfs is used in fstab, partitions will not mount even in global /home directory.
