I did not try it with this version of GINI. But we used to have the following working to directly access the host from the UML. From the old manual... please let me know whether it works or not. There are other ways.. but this is the easiest.
================================ You can mount the local file system (or part of it) from a UML instance so that the local file system appear as a directory in the UML file system. For example, if you want to mount the /tmp directory of your host file system in the /mnt/tmp of the UML file system, you can do that by issuing the command % mount none /mnt/tmp -t hostfs -o /tmp Both /mnt/tmp and /tmp should be present in the UML and host file systems respectively for this command to be successful. Note the mounting a file system also requires administrative privileges. ================================= -----Original Message----- From: gini-boun...@cs.mcgill.ca [mailto:gini-boun...@cs.mcgill.ca] On Behalf Of Tim Geoghegan Sent: Wednesday, September 30, 2009 9:29 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [gini] Mount UML filesystem? Hi, Is there any way to mount a UML's filesystem in the host OS's filesystem? It'd be great to be able to to copy .conf files from a UML to the host OS, or vice-versa.
