Curious if I can also use exfat in fstab setting, besides ntfs, fat, ext2, ext3.
But you should in the future! the 4gb size limit with fat32 is annoying
I just discover guys, in a given situation where you have hard disk and flash drive file system of ext3 and ext2 for optware mounting in fstab, to leave filesystem in EXT2, it can autodetect EXT3, as can be observed in the Attached devices in the USB support.
There are mac users out there.
NTFS doesn't work, but exFAT does. Please work on supporting this format.
I agree, I am a mac user, and I have pcs and linux machines in the house (roommates). Would love some exFAT support.
This format is supported by Tomato: Ext2 / Ext3 - NTFS - FAT - HFS - HFS+
that should suits all our needs.
ExFat is the format that works with Windows and Mac out-of-the-box, so would be great to have support for it. For now, best option is to get NTFS software for Mac (for writes).
I really don't know why the OP thinks that exFat is really needed, but a quick web search shows that it is unlikely to EVER be supported in tomato.
From wikipedia …
exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table) is a proprietary file system designed especially for flash drives developed by Microsoft, who have applied for patent protection. Microsoft has not released the official exFAT file system specification, and a restrictive license from Microsoft is required in order to make and distribute exFAT implementations. Microsoft also asserts patents on exFAT which make it impossible to re-implement its functionality in a compatible way without violating a large percentage of them. This renders the implementation, distribution and use of exFAT as a part of free or open-source operating systems or of commercial software, for which the vendors could not obtain a license from Microsoft, not only technically difficult, but legally impossible in countries that recognize United States software patents.
Another quick web search shows that there are both free and paid methods for getting full read/write access to NTFS and EXT3 partitions on a Mac.
