mount(8) - SerenityOS man pages


mount - mount a filesystem


$ mount
# mount -a
# mount <source> <target> [-t fstype] [-o options]


If invoked without any arguments, mount prints a list of all currently mounted filesystems.

If invoked as mount -a, mount mounts all the filesystems configured in /etc/fstab. This is normally done on system startup by SystemServer(7).

Otherwise, mount performs a single filesystem mount. Source should be a path to a file containing the filesystem image. Target and fstype have the same meaning as in the mount(2) syscall (if not specified, fstype defaults to ext2).

A special source value "none" is recognized, in which case mount(8) will not attempt to open the source as a file, and will pass an invalid file descriptor to mount(2). This is useful for mounting pseudo filesystems.

Options correspond to the mount flags, and should be specified as a comma-separated list of flag names (lowercase and without the MS_ prefix). Additionally, the name defaults is accepted and ignored.



# mount devpts /dev/pts -t devpts -o noexec,nosuid
# mount /home/anon/myfile.txt /tmp/foo -o bind
