KDL after unmounting an image file on a partition that is mounted read-only
|Reported by:||taos||Owned by:||nobody|
In hrev37573, a fat32 partition is mounted read-only by default. If you mount an image file (e.g. haiku-nightly.image) on this read-only partition by double-clicking and you subsequently try to unmount the image file via the right-click context menu, you'll visit kernel debugger land (see attached syslog_short.txt). After leaving KDL you have to force-unmount the fat32 partition.
If the fat32 partition is instead mounted with read and write access, you can mount and unmount image files (that afaik are always mounted with write access by default) without a problem. The fat32 partition can also be unmounted in the normal way.
It would be nice if Haiku would prevent you from mounting an image file on a read-only partition by a simple double-click or if Haiku would at least show a warning. Entering KDL could be a little irritating for an unexperienced first-time user of Haiku.
