Tips and tricks for Haiku/BeOS users

Hiding unwanted volumes

Contributed by: Allen Reese
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

Update: This is a legacy tip. It still works, but OpenTracker effectively solved this problem long ago by offering to remember which volumes were mounted under the last boot.

If you have multiple BFS partions on your system, you may only want some of them

to show up at boot time rather than all of them. Solution:

Add lines similar to these to your system’s user-level startup script:

/bin/mountvolume -unmount /BeFast BeFast
/bin/mountvolume -unmount /no name no name

The ‘s are because these volumes have spaces in their names which need to be escaped. BeFast and no name are the volume names…

Hope that helps your clutter. ;)
