I recently mounted a partition (hda5) onto the files sytem useing fstab. I can read-write to the files in hda5 on root with no problem, but can only read on my personal user. How do I change permissions for hda5 so all users can read-write on it? Thanks for your help.

Hi,

here are some things for reading (just the usual for the cofee n cigarette pause)

then do this on that directory

chmod 775 /mountedthing (replacing mountedthing with the actoul mountpoint... do this before mounting things to it)

if you want everyone even global users to get access to this directory

chmod 777 /mountedthing

but I would play with 775

maybe create a group allowedstuff... put you and the rest of the allowed people into it

and chown root.allowedstuff /mountedthing

then chmod 775 /mountedthing

and it will allow root...und everyone in the allowedstuff group

Sincerely
Robert B

But if your partition is of VFAT type it doen't support,permission bits.
So you will have to use UMASK 000.
