After having run "sudo mkfs -t ext4 -m 0 /dev/sda2" I followed the instructions from http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tartup-837768/
(first reply) to have the 2nd partition (this time ext4 instead of NTFS) mounted. Then you told me:
"Reformatting a partition typically discards any write permissions you had before. If that is your problem (just run an ls -l to find out), you can run sudo chown -R username.username on the mount point." #8
Which I didn't understand and because of this I replied you with #9 of this post. The problem is that I don't see how #10 clarifies #8/#9
1.1 In other words, I would like to ask: how do I know if my problem is the fact that the formatting I made with "sudo mkfs -t ext4 -m 0 /dev/sda2" discarded the write permissions I had before?
1.2 What tells me this through the output of the command "ls -l"? Is it the fact that my 2nd partition is mounted? Is it the fact that my 2nd partition is not mounted? Is it some other part of the "ls -l" command's output?
2 Does "run sudo chown -R username.username on the mount point" mean the command I should use is "sudo chown -R sf.sf /mnt/cdrive" (sf is my username)?
So that you can better understand my problem, I give you the text from my fstab file and the output of "ls -l", respectively:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
