fat32 permissions change/tar problems


how do I change the permissions of my fat32(hda3) partition so I can scces it under regular user?

Also, I type tar xvjf kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
and the out put reads

tar: bzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

any ideas?

Yep, you're missing the "bzip2" package.

In /etc/fstab add this to the list of options for your windows partition
umask=0022

then you need to remount it:

#mount -o remount /dev/hda3

I had a thread a few weeks back asking this same question. Basically, you can't set permissions for a FAT32 partition on a file-by-file basis. But if you edit your fstab file, you can make the partition writable by users.
