jazip.conf - jazip(1) configuration file.


The /etc/jazip.conf file lists the Jaz and Zip devices that users are allowed to mount and unmount using jazip, along with the mount points used by jazip for each device.

If you have more than one drive on your system, you can create a separate entry in the configuration file for each one, and then specify the raw device name of the drive you want to use on the command line when you invoke jazip. If no device name is given on the command line, jazip will use the settings in the first entry of /etc/jazip.conf by default.


The format of the jazip.conf file should be mostly self-explanatory. Each line looks like:

/dev/sda /zip auto auto 0 0

The first entry is the raw SCSI device name of your drive (e.g. /dev/sda without a partition number ). The second entry is the mount point you wish to use (e.g. /zip ). The additional entries:

auto auto 0 0

are required but are not user-changeable. They are required because jazip uses standard system call to do mounting and they expect this format.

The type of filesystem (e.g. vfat or ext2 ) will be automatically detected by jazip and is not listed in /etc/jazip.conf.


See the jazipconfig(8) man page for specifics on the jazipconfig command that you can use to create /etc/jazip.
