XVMOUNTCONFIG(8)            System Manager's Manual           XVMOUNTCONFIG(8)



NAME
       xvmountconfig - interactive xvmount configuration script

SYNOPSIS
       xvmountconfig  [ -h,--help ] [ --force ] [ --automatic ] [ --dir direc-
       tory ]

DESCRIPTION
       xvmountconfig creates the system configuration file for  the  graphical
       mount  utility  xvmount(1).   It  parses  /etc/fstab for user mountable
       devices and asks the user for all drives that should appear in the wid-
       get  of  xvmount.  From the selections it creates an xvmount configura-
       tion file xvmounttab either in /etc or in a selected directory.

       A more flexible configuration of xvmount is possible by manually  edit-
       ing /etc/xvmounttab according to the xvmount(1) man page.


OPTIONS
       -h,--help
              Print help about usage and exit.

       --force
              Force  creation  of  new  xvmount  configuration file even if it
              exists already.

       --automatic
              Automatically  creates  an  xvmount  configuration   file   from
              /etc/fstab  by  using  all  user  mountable devices and guessing
              appropriate names for them.

       --dir directory
              Creates xvmounttab in the given directory instead of /etc.

FILES
       /etc/xvmounttab     The system-wide xvmount configuration file.

NOTE
       This script was written exclusively for the Debian GNU/Linux  distribu-
       tion.  It is not a part of the upstream xvmount sources.

BUGS
       The  script  produces always an alphabetically ordered list of devices.
       Another display order in the widget is only possible by manually  edit-
       ing the xvmounttab file.
