SuSE and r/w hard disc
 
Heyp my problem is this; I have installed suse8.1 in hdb and i have hda not used. I used suse yast to format hda1 to use reiserfs and mounted it in fstab like /dev/hda1 /backup auto ro,user,exec 0 0 but now icant copy anything in it. I also try to format it in ext3 but same results. Whats wrong.

OK... unless I am sadly mistaken (and that is always a possibility), the 'ro' you have in the above line is mounting the filesystem READ-ONLY.

I think you can simply remove 'ro'. Try it.

Sorry for the "stupid question"
 
Yes thats true ro means read-only i just figured out when i tried to cp something in console not in konqueror. As usual console gives much specific info when everything is not fine. Thanks for your replys. This thread is happily over.
