Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster
Well here's my problem. When I installed Slack 9.0, I added all of my windows partitions. When I login with my user acct, I can view these partitions in X, can't even enter the dir with cli. I figure no problem, I just have to edit fstab right. Well I madfe the changes I thought I should, but no joy.
Here's my entry
/dev/hda6 /windata vfat defaults,sys,rw 1 0
Root can read/write no problems. My user acct is a member of sys, which is why I added sys. I thought defaults would take care of it. I have since rebooted, so the changes should have taken affect. I've since tried other settings, and issued "mount -aw" as root for the changes to take affect. (that is the right command I believe)
I've read through man fstab, and man mount. It looks ok from what I've read. I also thought it may be a problem with permissions. I have changed the permission to 777 on one of the win partitions but that hasn't helped either.
I'm sure it's something simple I'm missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for the long post
