Hello everyone, I have a tiny problem in Gnome 2.24 on Gentoo/amd64.
Not long ago I bought a 1 TB SATA hard drive. Being influenced by FreeBSD as I am, I partitioned it up into 7 partitions: /boot, swap, /, /var, /tmp, /usr and /home. However, upon switching to Gnome from Xfce I started noticing small problems in Gnome. Nautilus, and most other programs trying to access my /home folder, were blatantly ignoring my file permissions (which are set to 777). Neither logged in as user nor root could I change the file permissions in Nautilus. Here's what the Nautilus info window looks like:
Here's my /etc/fstab:
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2
/dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sda4 / ext4 noatime 0 1
/dev/sda5 /var ext4 noatime 0 0
/dev/sda6 /tmp ext4 noatime 0 0
/dev/sda7 /usr ext4 noatime 0 0
/dev/sda8 /home ext4 noatime,users,rw,exec 1 2
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,ro 0 0
shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
All my /home permissions are rwxrwxrwx.
I have already tried all the humanly possible with octal permissions, /etc/fstab and GDM configuration (I set RelaxPermissions=2 in GDM's custom.conf). So my question is this: how do I enable every program to write to my /home partition?
Thanks in advance,
