(SOLVED) permissions, My brain is frozen (again)

Post by bigbearomaha » Thu Mar 22, 2007 9:08 am

I am searching for how to change permissions to mounted partitions in fstab. right now, they are mounted, but as read only.

So far, the searches aren't pulling it up for me.

I know I've done it before, but doggone if I can't remember now.

any help?

Here is a nice "How To" for fstab - should get you there.

If they are NTFS/FAT32 partitions, just delete the lines referring to them in fstab and reboot the computer. MintDisk will take care of them.

actually, these are ext3 partitions. which are owned by root.

For ext3 I usually use that kind of entry (in /etc/fstab):
/dev/hda3 /media/hda3 ext3 defaults 0 2

I apologize. I wasn't paying attention that I posted about this issue in two places. mind on auto pilot I guess. This issue was solved awhile ago. My solution was to change permissions with chmod. seems to have no ill effects on the system.

I will pay better attention to how I post in here. This was redundant.
