Suse 10.1, Access denied while trying to access a partition
 
I recently switched over from unbuntu to suse 10.1 I thought the install was very easy and so far I am liking it. I am however having one issue. I have a 40g fat32 partition that shows up under "Disk Information" hoever I get a "Access Denied" error when I try to open it. I also cant use the "Mount" option or I get the same error. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks all!

You can use the "umask=" option to allow normal users access. If you are the only user on the computer you could use the "uid=" mount option. You can use either your UID number or your username.

If this usb partition is always present, then you can add a line to /etc/fstab for the partition. Then it will be mounted when you boot up. If it is an externel usb drive, it should be mounted when you plug it in by the udev setup.

Consider using "visudo" to setup the /etc/sudoers command. Then you can use "sudo" before root commands. The /etc/sudoers file is well commented. You can set it up simply by removing one of the example comments and making yourself a member of the wheel group.
