Bootable USB key messed up permissions on key..
I made a bootable USB key using the Ubuntu DELL iso. The key worked and I had look at the DELL iso. Now I have a problem though, I can't use my key to write an image to with Clonezilla. Key is Fat32
All directories and files on the key are listed as rwx------
*Changing permissions on the USB's own OS does work while in that OS.
When I then insert the key into another OS again the change is gone
and permissions still same as it was.
Hi, with fat32, window$ changes your permissions everytime you plug it in.
This has been spoken (written) about over the past few weeks. Here at LQ and elsewhere.
I think the best option is to have a partitioned usb-drive,
with a windoe$ partition and Linux partitions and a bootloader, that way you can stopp window$ from messing with your linux file attributes.
Sorry, I should of said. I don't use windows for anything. I have it in work that's all. They machine I am looking at the key on is Ubuntu 9.04 and the .iso on the key is the DELL version of Ubuntu 9.04.
I just want to rest the permissions on Ubuntu so as that I can use the key and Clonzilla has permission to write to it. The normal chmod and/or chown is not working as I mentioned above.
I'll run Clonezilla and enter the terminal and try change permission to the key before I write to it. I will have to do everything myself like mounting the key etc. I have the code for the back-up because Clonezilla does give it at the end of an operation which is great.
Hi, sorry, I'm not familiar with clonezilla.
sudo chown -R 755 /media/ATV/Images (recursive through directories)
Not sure how to setup sudo on ubuntu, but with mandriva,
I make the "user" part of the wheel group
edit(uncomment) some lines in the /etc/sudoers file
restart X to update the permissions and test.
sudo is set up in Ubuntu by default, nothing has to be done not like Fedora or Mandriva. None of the usual permission changing commands are working.
In USB on-board OS I can change permission but the change is gone once I look at the folders from another OS. On another OS I can not change permissions even as root..
I am in work today so I'll use Windows XP to copy the folders I want and then re-format.
I don't like when Windows solves a problem... Why is that?
