rc script to mount filesystem not working?


my system is a intel laptop on fedora core 6

I am trying to mount a ntfs partition using ntfs-3g using two scripts first one in rc5.d to mount and second one to unmount in rc0.d


I have getting the error in messages log

Nov 25 15:13:42 localhost kernel: audit(1164467622.166:80): avc: denied { read write } for pid=2810 comm="fusermount" name="fuse" dev=tmpfs ino=1403 scontext=system_u:system_r:mount_t:s0 tcontext=system_ubject_r:fixed_disk_device_t:s0 tclass=chr_file


Also when i trying running rc script it fails see below:

[root@localhost init.d]# ./ntfsmount
fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied
Retrying mount ...
fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied
Failed to mount NTFSUnmounting /dev/hda1 ()

Any ideas? i suspect selinux, so i stopped and started selinux so it relabelled the filesystem and it did relabel the two scripts see below

-rwxr-xr-x root root system_ubject_r:initrc_exec_t ntfsmount
-rwxr-xr-x root root system_ubject_r:initrc_exec_t ntfsunmount

Thanks in advance

I haven't used ntfs-3g, but have you tried adding a line to /etc/fstab instead of custom scripts? That's the normal way to specify which disks are mounted during boot.
