I'm trying to mount a data partition into my UML, and I'm running into an
The partition, hostside, is /dev/sdb1 . I'm trying to put it in as /dev/ubd4
I can put in the easy "ubd4=/dev/sdb1" and it works fine when I mount it
noramlly. I can also mount it RO.
What I would like to do is export it to the UML as a read-only device, so
that the UML /can't/ remount it readwrite and play with the data.
When I make it "ubd4r=/dev/sdb1" and try to mount it, it hangs.
indefinitely. I can still talk to the machine, and log in. But it
apparently doesn't have enough power to actually give me the prompt. So
my new session hangs too :o
Obviously I have something incredibly wrong with this syntax. Is this how
read-only devices are done, or do I need to do something inside the UML to
create a special ro-device ?
Or should I just bring it in and mount it RO and trust in my own
machiavellian security? (I do trust it, but the more the merrier IMO).
