Description Cameron Meadors 2007-06-26 13:35:22 EDT
Description of problem:

When I insert a Lexar JumpDrive, it is mounted, but I cannot write to it as the
logged in user.  Root is able to write to it.  I appears that the ownership is
not set correctly when mounted.  I have other usb media that works fine (I can
write to them).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Everytime with this one usb device.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Plug in the use stick
2.  Try to create a file on the device.
Actual results:

Permission denied error

Expected results:

File is created

This turns out to be user error completely.  The files on the usb stick were not
owned by me.  I was expecting to have ownership squashed with mount options as
happens when the filesystem in vfat.  This one however was ext2.  I guess this
just highlights the need for better user (non-root) tools for removable media.
