Re: Sharing repos between Linux and Windows

Hi Erik!

Sorry, I should have been more precise. I have a dual-boot system of
both Windows XP and Mandrake Linux 9.1. I have a FAT32 partition, used
only for my source code and documents, that is accessible to both
operating systems, obviously only one OS at a time. When I boot into
Windows (C: drive), my source code partition is accessible as the D:
drive. When I boot into Linux, my source code partition gets mounted
into /mnt/data.

I chose to use FAT32 for this partition because it was compatible with
both OSes in read/write, whereas NTFS was only recommendable for
read-only. However, I know that I might still encounter problems
related to CR/LFs, not because of the file system type, but rather due
to the differences in the OSes.

Hope this clarifies my situation a bit...

Best regards,
