Unhappy Filesystem Mounted Improperly?


I have NO idea what would have caused this! When I am looged in as root, I can see my mounted FAT32 Media partition and all of the files and directories just fine. When I am logged in as a user, all the directories show up as unknown files?



Here is my /etc/fstab file:
/dev/hda2 /boot ext3 noauto,noatime 1 1
/dev/hda3 / ext3 noatime 0 0
/dev/hda6 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win98 vfat uid=500,gid=500,rw,auto 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat uid=500,gid=500,rw,auto 0 0

Ideas?

/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat uid=500,gid=500,rw,auto 0 0

Replace with

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win98 vfat rw,auto 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat rw,auto 0 0

Try now

Sorry not tring to dilute your thread. You just mentioned not being able to access your music on your fat partiton, I was just relating to you I had a similar problem(not being able to play music from my fat partition). Nirvana kicks as was referring to your signature.

Try this:

/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat defaults,umask=000 0 0

if no luck try this:

/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat auto,rw,uid=500,umask=000 0 0

I got it, the fstab paramaters are a little different in Gentoo.

I *did* have fstab setup like so:

/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat gid=500,uid=500,rw,auto 0 0

Now I've done it like so:

/dev/hda5 /mnt/media vfat gid=users,uid=bigun,rw,auto 0 0

Just a minor adjustment, thanks guys!
