[SOLVED]permissions denied unable to write windows(NTFS) partition

[root@ZEN ~]# chmod a=rwx /media/case
chmod: changing permissions of `/media/case': Read-only file system

what does it mean  "Read-only file system"?

/etc/fstab

# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#
# <file system>        <dir>         <type>    <options>          <dump> <pass>

shm                    /dev/shm      tmpfs     nodev,nosuid        0      0

Re: [SOLVED]permissions denied unable to write windows(NTFS) partition

Read-only means you can't write to it ...

Are you using ntfs-3g?

This appears to answer your question. Google can be ever so useful sometimes.

Install ntfs-3g and replace ntfs with ntfs-3g in your fstab.

Probably not cleanly unmounted somewhere. I guess you need a windowsbox...

Re: [SOLVED]permissions denied unable to write windows(NTFS) partition

i changed the /etc/fstab
/dev/sda5 /media/case ntfs-3g defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,utf8,umask=0022,rw  0 0

and
chmod 666 /dev/null
mount -o remount,rw /

and reboot ,then it works.
