just edited fstab and quick question
I just edited my fstab to mount and r/w to my windows vfat partition. The line was:
/dev/hda1 /windows/C vfat rw,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
I edited it to say:
/dev/hda1 /windows/C vfat rw,users,gid=users,umask=0002,utf8 0 0
What is the this nls= with the unicode argument? I have tried finding info on it to no avail.
I can now read my windows partition haven't tried to write. What does nls do? also I understand the umask 000...but what does the 2 stand for and for whom does it apply?
I should probably add that when the line contained the nls= it would not automount the partition.
dmesg | tail said unrecognized fs and did not understand nls=utf8 0 0
(usermask) umask=002 is equivalent to 775 permission on a directory/executable or 664 on a text file. It uses a convention different from regular octal permissions.
This article explains it nicely.
