file permissions and file owner won't change
ok i ve mounted my ntfs permission as a user using the su command in the bash script on x (as normal usr)
of course am not able to enter it so .. i was changing the file owner and the file group
chown and chgrp
so it gives me
chgrp: changing group of `wine': Read-only file system
chown: changing ownership of `wine': Read-only file system

and when i write ls -l
r-x------ 1 root root 8192 Nov 29 16:52 wine
as u see the ownership is not changing
anybody with ideas ?

Filesystem operations liek this should only be done (will only work) on linux filesystems NTFS should only be mounted as readonly anyway since write support is not yet stable.

Hi Nadim

Mount your ntfs partition with mount options "default,ro,user,umask=022".

You shoudln't need to have write access to do that - just mount the partition with read and execute access for all users.
