[Solved] Write problem to ext4 with normal user

Hi !

Before i post that topic i did a lot of research on internet.I used chmod,chown commands and changed fstab according to arch wiki but every time i failed ! I want to mount /dev/sdxX /media/storage .There is one thing i couldn't understand i am creating a file (/media/storage) and i am taking its ownership and i am editing fstab according to it but when i rebooted the system root taking ownership from me even in /home , my home hmm

If you are expert about this please tell me what is the solution ? I don't want to try other ways just want a solution !

Thanks , by the way sorry for "low level english" hmm

Re: [Solved] Write problem to ext4 with normal user

/media/storage is just a mountpoint. What is the problem, you cannot mount as a user or you can mount but not write to?
Pleas post your fstab, the output of 'mount | column -t' with /dev/sdxX mounted on /media/storage and some more info about what do you think is wrong with /home.

Re: [Solved] Write problem to ext4 with normal user

I can mount /dev/sda4 to /media/storage but only root can write to /media/storage that is the problem.Normally , files in home must be mine if didn't create it with root.I am creating a file instead of /media/storage in home with normal user account ( just a try for see what is happening)  but after rebooted root taking the ownership of the file i created in  home

/etc/fstab

/dev/sda4        /media/storage        ext4       rw,relatime,users    0 0

mount | column -t

proc              on  /proc                     type  proc                   (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)

/dev/sda2         on  /                         type  ext4                   (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
devpts            on  /dev/pts                  type  devpts                 (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)

Re: [Solved] Write problem to ext4 with normal user

After mounting try "sudo chown youruser /media/storage".  That should make your user own the root of the mounted filesystem from now on, so you shouldn't have to do that on future mounts of that filesystem.
