Adding support for different filesystem types

Adding support for different filesystem types

Depending on which SCO system you have, some of the filesystem device drivers might not be configured into the kernel by default. If the filesystem driver is not already configured, you must add it to the system using the Hardware/Kernel Manager before the system recognizes the filesystem type. (The Hardware/Kernel Manager runs the mkdev(ADM) script in /usr/lib/mkdev). 

The ht driver, which provides support for the HTFS (default), EAFS, AFS, and S51K filesystem types, is always configured into the default kernel.

To add support for a filesystem type, configure the driver into the kernel using the Hardware/Kernel Manager. See ``Configuring drivers with the Hardware/Kernel Manager'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook.

After adding the driver to the system configuration, create and relink a new kernel and then reboot the system for the change to take effect. See ``Relinking the kernel'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook. 


NOTE: You cannot use the Hardware/Kernel Manager to configure support for the NFS, SCO Gateway for NetWare, and LMCFS filesystems. For these filesystems, see ``Configuring protocols'' in Configuring Network Connections.
