VFAT automount

dwclarke Posts: 12

When I mount a FAT formatted memory card with Debian 6, files are

a) All upper case chars

b) The file creation time is taken as UT, not local time.

I would like:

a) All lower case chars

b) The file creation time is taken as local time.

I've hunted round the file system, like you do, to see if I can spot the appropriate config files, and also done a fruitless search of the internet.

So, what am I looking for is the bit that's responsible for import rules.

There you go. Point me to some easily found documentation that I've completely missed.

    And how do you mount the memory card?

    What window manager/desktop environment are you running?

    Do you use HAL...udev?

    Anyway, a simple
    mount /dev/sdx /folder/you/want

    Should suffice

    Well, the question is more, what does Debian use by default for automounting?

    There is no problem mounting, it's the parameters used when mounting that I want to fiddle with.

    Environment is KDE.

    Aaaaa, it's KDE. Didn't expect that.

    Thanks for that. That explains the name case, now to look at the file creation time problem. May be easier, now I know KDE is involved with the process.
