fstab stumps me again.


i just installed mandrake 9.1...yay.

i want to be able to read and use files on my windows partition (mp3s, jpgs, etc).

i looked on this site for the appropriate solution, but my fstab doesn't look like other people's...i think.

anyway, here's the line from my windows partition:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0

i've read that i should put in a 'umask=000' option, but when i added that to the end it wouldn't let me remount it.

ok. thanks.

The umask should be comma seperated with no space:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,users,umask=022 0 0

Cool

whoops

ok, i got it.

one other mount-related issue though...

on my desktop sits three icons, one for each cdrom device and one for my floppy. normally i rename these, because they have long names like "CDROM mounted at /mnt/cdrom." but it won't let me rename them.

than they disappeared for a bit, so i just added links to the corresponding locations, and these links i can just rename to simple names like "DVD-ROM" and such.

so i guess i'm asking either for the process of removing them from my esktop, but not unmounting them...OR just being able to rename them.

thanks.

Not too sure, it's sounding pretty "desktop environment specific" though. You might check your KDE/GNOME control Panel for info. I don't see why you couldn't delete them in the first place though? If that happens again, check your .kde (assuming KDE) directory for the Desktop directory and see if can remove it from there (via the command line).

Cool

Those icons are dynamically generated by KDE. Right click the desktop and choose configure. In behaviour, see the Devices section at the bottom.
