linuxconf writes:
"/dev/sda5 /mnt/d vfat exec,dev,suid,rw,perm=007 1 1"
in /etc/fstab
instead of:
"/dev/sda5 /mnt/d vfat exec,dev,suid,rw,umask=007 1 1"

And "perm" doesn't exist according to the mount man pages
and it also doesn't work.
So you've got to mannualy edit the /etc/fstab file and
change "perm" into "umask".

Confirmed in test lab.  Perm has no effect with a mount statement.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-02-11 15:43:59 EST

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-03-19 17:50:59 EST
