    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 1024 1970-01-01 01:00 xfer

    ** full access to windows for test purposes **

    (2) Mount windows:

    mitticus@mitticus:/media$ mount windows
    mitticus@mitticus:/media$ ls -l
    total 35
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2005-12-07 14:10 cdrom -> cdrom0
    dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 1970-01-01 01:00 cdrom0
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2005-12-28 15:56 ieee1394disk

    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 1024 1970-01-01 01:00 xfer

    *** See? It has gone all root on me! ***

    (3) fstab lines

    #
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 2
    /dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 2
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 user,auto 0 2
    /dev/hda6 /media/xfer auto defaults 0 2
    /dev/sdd5 /media/usb1 auto user,auto 0 2
    /dev/sda1 /media/windows ntfs users,exec,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0

    *** all users should have access ***

    (4) Question

    What is happening here? "windows" was created using mkdir.

    Why is it not accessible to all users after mounting? I tried google
    but never found a solution to get it working : only people doing other
    things or reformatting in ext2 or somesuch.


    NB : if I "su" to root I can go into "windows" and "ls" etc to my
    hearts content.

    thanks for any help

  2. Re: NTFS mounting only with root access. Please help.

    *snip*

    Found it : it was the ntfs specific option "umask".

    /dev/sda1 /media/windows ntfs users,exec,umask=000,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0


    thanks anway
