NEEDINFO mount fat32 -w
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:58 EDT
Description of Problem:
unable to mount windows fat 32 via fstab rw. I can mount the volumes rw for
root only, and only when I mount manually. using the string:
mount -w -t vfat /dev/hda1 //mnt/cee
tried using -o gid=500 and a whole wrath of variations - yet I still cannot get
the volumes to load rw for my primary login - so I don't have to login as root.
also tried adding to the fstab - but that fails on bootup - it starts to mount
the volumes then hangs and I have to ctrl+c past it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable)
whenever I try to mount windows volumes rw for all users
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount in fstab - fails
2. manual mount only makes rw to root - despite options
no re for my admin login
rw for admin login
suggestions PLEASE!!! :)
My wild-and-uninformed guess is a configuration error, since it "WORKSFORME". I can't
help you track down that type of problem, but if you use one of the support forums
mentioned on our web site to narrow things down to the actual cause of things, and use
that info to make up a reproducible test case, I'll be happy to look at the problem then.
