On Power MachTen startup, as part of the cleanup, MachTen deletes the
contents of the /volume directory. Potential results, if a disk or partition
is mounted to /volume using /etc/fstab are obvious. The following changes to
"/etc/rc" will solve the problem. Details about "/volume" and its
directories are included below. In "/etc/rc" change:
$ECHO -n " /volume"; cd /volume && $RM -fr *
$ECHO -n " /volume"; cd /volume && /bin/rmdir * 2>/dev/null
The intent of cleaning "/volume" is to remove old directory entries which
were previously used as mount points for Macintosh volumes, NOT the contents
of any volume currently mounted there! "rmdir" will remove a directory
if-and-only-if it is empty and not mounted on, which is what we want.
Directory entries are created in "/volume" by "macmntd(8)". Macmntd get a
signal when a removable Mac volume comes online. It gleans the name of the
new Macintosh volume, then check "/etc/fstab" for an entry dictating where
to mount this volume. If no entry exists in fstab, macmntd creates a
directory in "/volume", using the Macintosh volume name. It then mounts the
new Mac volume on this directory. When the removable volume is ejected, or
MachTen quits, the directory entry remains in "/volume". Thus "/volume"
could, over time, get cluttered with directory entries.
G7.q. How do I change the login banner of MachTen/CodeBuilder?
Change the default entry in the /etc/gettytab file. This is the line to
