mounting isues (AGIAN!)

3 posts in this topic

humm tis a bit of a pisser this subject coz it allways comes down to permissions!

but this is a reaccuring problem with me and slack 8.0 thru 10.0 (witch im running now)

when eva i try to mount a drive weather it be a nfs mount or a local drive i get the same thing!

as norm when root i can do what eva i lke (as you'd expect) but when mounting a any other user even if that user is in GUID of root its allways

"mount: only root can mount (device name)"

as an e.g i have this line in my fstab:

/dev/hda1 /home/win vfat noauto,users,rw,umask=777 1 0

as far a my knowlage takes me this should work fine, that or a umask of 277 i think......

i have also tryed this as a quick fix :

/dev/hda1 /home/win vfat uid=bobUSERID,gid=bobGROUPID,rw,umask=777 1 0

but as you can see hardly a system wide suloution

i'm real stubed on this one....

Is there some vital bit of slack admin i missed some where? coz every version of slack i've run there has had the same problem!

Create a blank directory in your home directory and mount it to that directory.

hummm :( that will not work as its mounted with the permissions in fstab... as far as im aware, and changing the permissions of a folder dosen't solve the prob eather because the sys is sayin i have to be root to access the device for mounting (well thats whtat i understand)

NEED GURU! HELP....
