Hi,

I have been running TinyCore 7.x (32bit).
I found today that the 'mount' command included in 'util-linux.tcz' fails when that package is loaded and I attempt to mount a virtualbox shared folder.

I am using the virtualbox guest additions package. I have the vboxsf module loaded.
The busybox version of mount works fine with vbox shared folders.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any suggestions on how to fix?

There are some useful programs in util-linux that I would like to utilize.

/Lindsay

What error message do you get when you attempt to use the mount command from util-linux?

You can still use the busybox mount command (when the util-linux extension is loaded) by using the full path to it.

Thanks for the prompt response. See error message below.

I know I can work around by referencing busybox directly.

It just  took me a few minutes before I realized that the issue may have been with the version of mount in util-linux.
I had installed it a couple of days ago but had not actually rebooted the vm and needed to remount the host shared drives.

It was momentarily concerning to see the error... :o  my first thought was that I had inadvertently hosed the host drive.
