i'm running a dual boot system with winxp and slackware 9.1 at the moment and i use a fat32 partition to share data between the two. i also keep my download directory there so i can share my downloads between emule and xmule and everything was working just fine since yesterday when xmule went crazy and i tried to shutdown and reboot.
now when i boot to linux everything looks fine and i have full access to the fat partition but sometime after i start xmule it gives me some permission errors like "could not create backup of /mnt/share/emule/temp/something.part.met" and the partition appears like read-only.
in any case it looks like the permissions for the partition are changing somehow(?) as it is not a problem with xmule only. i can't make any changes on the partition until i reboot and i keep getting errors saying this is a read-only drive.
in /etc/fstab this partition is "/dev/hda2 /mnt/share vfat quiet,defaults,umask=000 0 0" and obviously loads fine but...
i hope this dosn't look too confusing
. thanks in advance for any help.
