"creating symbolic link" "operation not permitted"


Hi,

I have the following problem with zipslack 10.2:
(but googling around lets me assume, that it is not specific to (zip-)Slack)

I have mounted another (FAT32-)partition of my harddisk; I can copy files to and from this partition but I can't create any (soft/hard) links on this partition.
The links are supposed to reference files on the same disk, no "partition crossing".

# ln -s foo bar

results in something like

"ln: creating symbolic link 'bar' to 'foo': Operation not permitted"

(file 'foo' exists, of course)

Searching Google, some people assume, that links are generally impossible on FAT-partitions - but that is nonsense, as the root-fs of Zipslack is FAT (UMSDOS) too, and there it works without problems.

Any Idea?

I might be wrong, but in my knowledge its FAT32 and FAT16 partitions that cant handle links. UMSDOS on the otherhand is not the same thing as FAT32 but a compatible filesystem. So, UMSDOS seems to be able to handle links.

This thread is almost 6 years old. I think you would be better served by starting your own thread on this issue. State what distro you are using and what version. Also state exactly what you are trying to do (create symbolic links or whatever), and post any error messages you may be getting.

And welcome to the LQ forums.
