Accidentaly I have removed my
/mnt directory... how can I restore it? with the exact permissions and etc???
This directory was empty.
/mnt as root and:
chmod 755 /mnt
Yes, all you have to do is to (as root)
mkdir /mnt chmod 755 /mnt
The chmod is necessary to ensure that the mountpoint works correctly.
This directory is provided so that the system administrator may temporarily
mount a filesystem as needed. The content of this directory is a local issue
and should not affect the manner in which any program is run
This means you can simply create the
/mnt directory as instructed in the other answers. Since there was nothing mounted under /mnt and it was empty, nothing to worry.
