Cannot find a way to mount an EXT4 file system so SAMBA has write access


I have an NTFS external hard drive on my Raspberry Pi (raspian) which is slow and I think the file system driver is flakey. Trying to replace with with EXT4 external hard drive (no partitions)

Logged in the to Pi, I can read and write the EXT4 drive just fine.
I get write access through SAMBA with the NTFS drive, but none of the variations in MOUNTing gets me write access to the EXT4 drive through SAMBA

I cannot find any log file entries explaining the failure to grant write access.

Samba.conf attached as text file (shares near bottom of file)
fstab attached as text file (same results when using MOUNT command)
mount -l output attached as text file

Any help greatly appreciated.

Jonathan

Oops, real simple. I forgot about the old octal-code permissions scheme, so I was able to CHMOD my way through this.

My apologies for the distraction
