Recently installed captive-ntfs and it works great. Now I want to have it fully read/write accessible to multiple users (just me and one other person, actually). I've been able to do this for just myself with-
mount -t captive-ntfs -o uid=500 /dev/hda1 /windows/C
But this, obviously, wouldn't let any other users than myself (me having the user id 500) read/write to the drive. So I made a group named winfsa (windows file system access.. I thought it was creative) and tried putting myself and the other user in that group. Once we were both in group winfsa I tried
mount -t captive-ntfs -o gid=1001 /dev/hda1 /windows/C
1001 of course being the winfsa group id. This didn't seem to work at all. Security isn't a very big issue to me, I'm just on a stand-alone desktop machine in a dorm-room, so I tried looking up how to make the partition accessible to anyone. Tried
mount -t captive-ntfs -o users,exec,rw /dev/hda1 /windows/C
But it still won't work. I've been trying all sorts of things but nothing seems to work at all. Here is my current /etc/fstab
/dev/hda3 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda2 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda5 /windows/D vfat user,exec,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/dvd /media/dvd auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0
/dev/hda1 /windows/C captive-ntfs user,exec,umask=0 0 0
And, btw, everything I tried on the captive-ntfs file-system I also tried on that vfat partition you see up there, just because I thought captive-ntfs might have some wierd things going on that might cause it not to work. But with both vfat and captive-ntfs neither one has worked.
So someone help me. I just need the partition to be read/write accessible to me and one other person.. at the same time. Shouldn't be too hard.
Using a fresh install of SuSE 9.0 if it helps.
