MOUNT_STD(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		  MOUNT_STD(8)

     mount_std,	mount_devfs, mount_fdesc, mount_kernfs,	mount_procfs --	mount
     ``standard'' filesystems

     mount_fsname [-o options] fs mount_point

     The mount_std command is a	generic	mechanism for attaching	``standard''
     filesystems to the	filesystem.  The mount_std command currently supports
     the following filesystems:	devfs, fdesc, kernfs and procfs.  A ``stan-
     dard'' filesystem is one which:

	   1.	accepts	only the standard -o options "ro" (``rdonly''),	"rw",
		"nodev", "noexec", "nosuid", and "union".

	   2.	has a kernel filesystem	module name the	same as	its user-visi-
		ble name.

	   3.	requires no other special processing on	the part of the
		mount_std command.

     The options are as	follows:

     -o	     Options are specified with	a -o flag followed by a	comma sepa-
	     rated string of options.  See the mount(8)	man page for possible
	     options and their meanings.

     The mount_std command examines its	zeroth command-line argument (the name
     by	which it was called) to	determine the type of filesystem to be
     mounted.  If it is	called by a name which does not	end in "_fsname",
     mount_std will assume (for	compatibility with mount(8)) that the zeroth
     argument contains only the	name of	the filesystem type.  The mount_std
     command is	normally installed with	appropriate links to commands for the
     distributed filesystems which can be mounted in this way; for information
     on	the function of	each filesystem, see the manual	page for that specific
     mount_fsname command.

     Refer to the following manual pages for detailed information on these
     file system: devfs(5), fdesc(5), kernfs(5)	and procfs(5).

     argv[0] must end in _fsname  Mount_std was	called with a zeroth argument
     of	"mount_std".

     vfsload(%s)  Mount_std was	unable to load a kernel	module implementing
     the %s filesystem type.

     %s	filesystem not available  The specified	filesystem type	was not
     present in	the kernel and no loadable module for it was found.

     mount(2), unmount(2), getvfsbyname(3), devfs(5), fdesc(5),	fstab(5),
     kernfs(5),	procfs(5), mount(8)

     None of the ``standard'' filesystems may be NFS-exported.

     The mount_std utility first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.  Loadable filesystem
     modules first appeared in FreeBSD 2.0.  The "fdesc", "kernfs", and
     "procfs" filesystem types first appeared in FreeBSD 2.0; the "devfs"
     filesystem	type first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.
