fstab


hello

what do i have to write in my fstab to mount a harddrive automatically as a specific user (--> phoenigs) with all rights at mountpoint "/mnt/downloads"

its the device /dev/hda2

i only got it to work, that i must umount the device as root after starting the system, and then i can mount it as "phoenigs" again...

thx

The following example will automatically mount the partition, allow the user to mount/un-mount it (user) and set the permissions (umask).
Code:
/dev/hda2                /mnt/downloads             auto    defaults,user,uid=phoenigs,gid=phoenigs,umask=022 0 0
Take a look at the MAN page for mount, you will find description concerning all the available options.
