Weird Mounting issues. One moment you can write, another moment, you can't.
 
Hi guys,

Quote:

/dev/hda6 /mnt/hd vfat user,umask=000,noauto,rw,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
The above is a line from /etc/fstab. It gives the user "user" the right to mount this volume.

Here's the weird part: After user (that's me) mount the volume successfully, user is able to write to it and make manipulations to the file system. Suddenly, user is not able to write to the volume. Error message stating that it is a read only volume.

I did a right click in KDE in the volume to try to do a CREATE NEW FOLDER option. To my surprise, there isnt any CREATE NEW... option.

I start a konsole and tried a MKDIR command. It failed too. Stating the volume is read only.

As user, i un-mount the volume and re-mount the volume again. This time, Im able to write to the volume again.

After a while, I have the same problem again. Im totally puzzled.

To solve this issue, I simply mount the volume using root access...

I've this feeling I've screwed up my fstab entries.

What went wrong?

Please advise.

Thanks and regards,
Steven.

This is the pesky error message:

mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Read-only file system



And this happens even if I mount as root !!
