Hi. When I do a normal mount on a read-only cartridge in my Shark drive,
it mounts as writable. While mounted, my computer delays for a while.
And when I browse the disk, it gives errors and locks the drive. I can't
eject or unmount. But when I use the -r switch, it works correctly. Is
there a way to make it automatically mount it read-only when necessary,
so I won't have problems like this. My floppy drive does that. When I
mount a read-only floppy, it gives the following message:
mount: block device /dev/fd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
... and works correctly. Is this a bug in PARIDE, or is it just not
Unrelated question, completely off-topic: What makes 'Red Hat 7.0 Beta'
a beta? Does it use the 2.4 test kernel? If not, then it isn't really a
beta. Most programs installed in 6.2 by default are beta, does that make
'Red Hat 6.2' a beta?
