problem changing file permissions on fat32 partition
When I try to change file permissions on my mounted fat32 partition, I get an error "Operation not permitted"...
I am not sure if suffixing a '-w' in the options makes the vfat partition writable, but this is what i put in my /etc/fstab
/dev/hda1 /mnt/c: vfat rw,-w 0 0
Otherwise, I am able to create new files on my fat32 drive by manually mounting the windows partition-
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/c: -w
Let me know if the entry in /etc/fstab is incorrect..and if it is, whats the proper way to do that?
Second question is, that why am i not able to change file permissions? changing the umask also does not have any impact on newly created files......can anyone provide a solution?
