I use slackware 12 (dual boot with winxp).
I have this weird filesystem/mounting problem.
I want to use my own /others
as a shared partition that all users can write-read on it.
here's my current snippet from my ftsab:
/dev/hda5 /others ext3 defaults,noexec,umask=000 1 2
well, because of this users can write-read and I can see files on this partition.So far so good.
However, every time I boot I get this kind of message.
EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option "umask=000" or missing value
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda5
Now, whenever I remove the umask=000 option from the /etc/fstab the message above will gone but the files in that partition will be all missing which I know they're there. Instead, there will be 2 directory appears: Recycled
. Users can still write-read though but my files are "missing".
Back to umask=000 option,reboot,mount error message, *poof* Recycled and lost+found disappear, my files in /others reappear again! weird...
How to make my /others partition work like now but without the annoying error message?
