Write permissions on a mounted fat32 partition


Hello. I am having problems when trying to set read/write permissions for a non-root user on a fat32 partition. I am running SUSE 10.0. I have already tried running
chmod 777 /path/to/folder
chown 777 /path/to folder
And even trying to mount the device to the non-root user home folder; with the same result.
Could you help me? Thnx.

I assume the vfat partition is listed in the /etc/fstab file. If so edit your fstab file and add umask=000 as one of the options in the last section.
Example
Code:
/dev/hda10              /sharevfat              vfat    umask=000,users,auto,owner,rw   0 0
