In my System, there is an old FAT32-formatted hdd running for filesharing-use. It is mounted vfat defaults 1 1.
I tried changing the ownership of the files on that disk with chown and -even as root- got the error message operation not permitted
What Do I have to change, so the files belong to nobody and can easilier be rw-shared with samba???
fat 32 files don't have permissions... that's a linux/unix/bsd thing. when you write a file to a fat32 partition from windows, linux treats the file as a fat32 file, not linux file... thus, no permissions.
I get problems such as when i untar an archive onto a fat32 drive, i get lots of permision denieds, and cannot create link problems (i think that's what they were...). Pretty vague.... I'll change my settings to your ones, and see if it's any better...
