vfat under gentoo


I have gentoo running on a vanilla source kernel. My question is this, I have a secondary hard drive and need it to be mounted. Have vfat module loaded, but when modprobed, errors occures. Any recommendations for viewing drive. Altering fstab, won't work cause kernel won't load probe for vfat.

What's the errors? Without the vfat module, viewing a fat32 partition is going to be pretty grim. You could try the udf filesystem module if you compiled that in, but likely it won't work. Your best bet is going to just head back and recompile the kernel or otherwise fix the error with your vfat module.

That certainly an odd error. What CFLAGS do you have in your make.conf file? Did you adjust your kernel's make flags?

You might wanna go back and re-do the filesystem support on your kernel, finish up the rest of the kernel build and try again (reduce your make flags though *possibly*, I'm not sure exactly what that error means?). Did you select the correct type of processor you have in the CPU support section (at the beginning) of your kernel compile?

Cool

What about your make.conf CFLAGS?

Cool
