Hi manish_regmi,

I hope solaris too has the mount command

mount -t <fstype> <device> <directory>

Hi manish_regmi,
Check this link:
http://developers.sun.com/solaris/articles/lxrun/

At least ext2 access seems to be possible.

Cheers,
Stefan

 Thanks but i dont want to use any emulators. I was trying to know if solaris has support for fat32, ext2, ntfs file systems. If it does not have by default(it seems like that), how can i download it and install it.

sunny:
 I didn't find the man page or mount command help telling about the file systems supported by it.

I also found the user program using open() etc to read ext2 partitions. but i dont want that also.

thanks.

thanks for your help.
I found a document in the sun's site describing all that.

NTFS seems to have read only support.

thanks.

Manish,

You solved the problem on your own and hence this question was a fit case for refunding the points. I had requested yuzh to review the question and refund the points
