Only root access for mounted harddisks


Hi to everyone!


I have a big problem with my SuSE Linux 9.0 and my NTFS-partions...

I can mount them without problems, unmount and stuff, but only root is able to accsses the partitions.

In my fstab are lines like this for all my ntfs partions:

/dev/hda1 /media/windows/C ntfs noauto,user,ro,exec 0 0

So, where is the problem? why cant normal users accsses the partions?
Why cant I use chmod to give accsess-rights like 777 or 755?


Please help! I'm totally frustrated!

(when I looked there was nothing to try) try this:
/dev/hda1 /media/windows/C ntfs umask=0,noauto,exec,ro 0 0
This sets to '777'. 'chmod' won't work on Windows drives. 'noauto' causes the drive to not be mounted on bootup (remove it if you don't want this). 'owner' only lets root mount. 'users' is for letting regular users mount and unmount (put that in if you want, but if it's being mounted automatically on bootup it's not needed).

I'm not quite sure of that, as i'm not in my PC, but you can also add uid=xxx to fstab file, xxx meaning your normal user ID (mine i think is 500 or 501)
Try also to do a 'chown user:user /media/windows/C' (user is of course your username)

Hope it helps

'chown' won't work. 'uid=' sets the ownership of the files to the referenced user. You can put the name instead of the id if you want: 'uid=jdoe'.
