Hi everyone, already few weeks ago I installed suse 10 on my desktop PC, it works fine, but, the main purpose was to be able to access fat32 partitions becouse I left there a lots of data since i had windows.Now, after looking for some answere i still can't gain access to my fat32 partitions. I tried to do $mount /dev/sda6 in command line, but it says "Permission denied", from konqueror it says : "mount: can't find /dev/sda6 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
Please check that the disk is entered correctly."
I gues I need to edit manually fstab, but I don't know what to write there...
something to note is that FAT32 cannot understand Unix permissions and so whe nmounting, you need to give the files a 'mask' which is basically telling it to assume certain permissions by default. This is necesary when writing and reading as users etc.
to achieve this you will need to add umask=000 to the fstab options for that mount. Again this has been covered MANY times in this forum
ok, that what dcdbutler wrote worked, thanks, but........as all data was in russian, now averything, folders, files, are in ???????? signs, and to rename all this it's a heel....is there some solution to see it in russian? I have kde in ukrainian( I'm ukrainian) it's aulmost like russian, konqueror in ukrainian, so why folders aren't in ukrainina to?
