Cant mount with umask=000
Hi there, i've tried to create an ext2 partition in gentoo which i can use EXT2IFS drviers in windows to write to. Unfortunately, it wont let me mount it with read/write priveleges for normal users.
The mount command works without complain if the following line is inserted in the fstab document:
/dev/hda10 /mnt/fatty auto user,rw
As its obviosuly told it to mount read/write (rw) but only root has rights to make changes to the drive.
But when i try the common umask=000 command as below:
/dev/hda10 /mnt/fatty auto user,umask=000 0 0
It spits out the following:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda10,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
desg gives out:
EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option "umask=000" or missing value
