Question Question about mounting


ok....here is my question


I'm running Slack 10. When i log in as root, i (of course) have permissions to view my windows partitions. I set my user account up to have permissions to mount my partitions, but under my user account, i cannot browse these mounted partitions, which i can browse when i am root. i was curious if anyone knows how to get around this. i know i can copy and paste these files as root, but i don't like resetting permissions to give my user account access to these files.

any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

You should change your /etc/fstab file to give users the possibility to mount the windows partition and have access to it.

This is part of my fstab file (only the windows partitions):

/dev/hdb1 /win/c ntfs noauto,gid=100,user,umask=007 1 0
/dev/hdb2 /win/d vfat noauto,gid=100,user,umask=007 1 0

I'll explain the parameters:
noauto - You can delete this one, what it does is to not mount the partition on boot.
gid=100 - This tells that the files owner group will be 100 (the is users group).
user - This allows a user to u/mount the partition.
umask = 007 gives read,write,execute permitions to owner and group and nothing to others. (it's the opossite to chmod where it should be 770).

If you have any doubt you can read fstab's man page or search this forums, there have been some posts about these a few weeks ago.

Try :

/dev/hda1 /C ntfs noauto,users,ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/hdb1 /D ntfs noauto,users,ro,umask=0222 0 0

umask :
if you know a little network things, it is like a network mask.
0777 - 0222 = 0555
With an umask of 0222, you have 0555 permissions for ntfs files (read and execute for all), there is a "0" before "222" to indicate it is an octal number.
