Re: Mounting and permissions

Use the uid, guid and/or mask mount options. E.g. something like the following, which I used on a dualbooting pc:

/dev/hda1    /mnt/win2k    vfat    gid=100,umask=007,noatime    0 0

In this case, gid 100 is the group "users", umask 007 means read, write and execute permissions for root and all users in group "users", and none for everyone else.

Re: Mounting and permissions

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win2k vfat gid=100,umask=007,noatime 0 0

what i think i should be doing:

mount -t ntfs /...../part2 /windows/F/ gid=6

... i dont know what the other parts are
6 is the "disc" group, which i really dont know what it does... so im shooting in the dark here.  Thanks for the help

Re: Mounting and permissions

/etc/udev/permissions.d/udev.permissions lists all the groups allowed to each device.
