Cant copy files to a fat partition i mount as RW?


Hi, this is weird...this worked before...but i wanted to try a beta fedora build, and when i formated that off and reinstalled my core 1 one...and set it up the exactly the way it was when this sorta thing worked (i,e, i could copy files to this partition before)...that it didnt work

this is how my /etc/fstab line goes

/dev/hda6 /mnt/Linux-To-Windows vfat users,owner,rw,umask=000 0 0

is their something i forgot to do?

What command are you using to do the copy? What error message are you getting?

Its saying its read only, but it sholdnt be...even tried with root account but no dice.

"Error While copying to "/mnt/Linux-To-Window".
The destination disk is read-only."

i wasnt using a command, just opening the icon for the drive on my desktop and dragging to that folder/directory a file.

'"Error While copying to "/mnt/Linux-To-Window".

Take a look at the permissions for /mnt/Linux-To-Windows. Try setting them to 777.

Also look at the line in /etc/fstab for /Linux-To-Windows and make sure that it is mounted with permissions for user access.

"hmm how do you do the permission thing?"

Log in as root. Linux will not let you change permissions on a mount point. So first umount the partition:
umount /mnt/Linux-To-Window

Use the chmod command (see: man chmod). If you want to change the permissions to 777 the command is:
chmod 777 /mnt/Linux-To-Window

Then reboot and you should be OK, assuming that /etc/fstab is set up to allow users to use /mnt/Linux-To-Window.
