Hey guys, i'm useing slackware 11.0. I just installed last week, and I searched under permissions etc, couldn't find exactly what i needed.
I've got a 300gb external hard drive. I've mounted it, and it's showing up. I loged into the root accound and copied some files over onto my internal hard drive. I can access and view all my files just fine logged in as root in the KDE...but once I log into my normal user accound, the system:/media/sda2/usb is locked. To by pass this. I logged into my root accound, and copied the files over from my external directly onto my normal user accounts desktop. So I've got the folders containing all the files. I can go into the folders, but all documents, pictures, music, videos, everything has a lock over it. I also tried loging back in as root and then right clicking on the folder of the external hard drive, and changing the permission for groups and others to few & modify it. When i log back into my normal account, I can get in, but still can't open the files. I went back into root, and checked the "appply to all subfolders and files" and then my system went very slow..evenually coming up with an error. I can't think of anything else, got any idea's?
