External USB Hard Drive can write after KDE 4.6.5 upgrade


CAN'T write rather (missed the 't on the subject. ;-)


I have Slackware64-Multilib 13.37 and I recently upgraded KDE to 4.6.5 using AlienBob's packages/instructions (via README in the 4.6.5 directory).

Before I upgraded KDE, when I connected my 250GB external HDD it mounted it to /media/disk. Now with 4.6.5 KDE, the mounting point is /media/257292B62DE52FC9. I issue the mount command and get:

Code:
/dev/sdf1 on /media/257292B62DE52FC9 type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177)
It's NTFS, but rw. When I try to create a directory I get the following error (as root):

Code:
root@gonzo:/media/257292B62DE52FC9/Backups# mkdir 2011-12-21
mkdir: cannot create directory `2011-12-21': Operation not permitted
root@gonzo:/media/257292B62DE52FC9/Backups#
I can cd into any directory and read files without error.

When I use Dolphin as user id (1000), I still get the an error:

Code:
Could not make folder /media/257292B62DE52FC9/Backups/2011-12-21
Any ideas? Is there a way to revert back to KDE 4.5.5??

Thanks!!

Open a konsole, and run the command 'mount' ( without quotes ) to get a listing of the mounted file systems, and the way they are mounted.

Have a look at the external drive, and make sure it got mounted as r/w; not r/o. I had a similar problem, and even though the mount command specifies r/w, the kernel can mount it r/o if there are problems with the file system.

Please re-read my post. I did that. ;-)
