    mounting a user accesible partition

    i have a partition which i store all my media files on in vfat, im using debian sarge, and on my previous install the user could view this partition but not edit it, however this install the user cannot even see it, only root can see and use the partition, and i dont want to be in root constantly, heres what my fstab entry looks like for it

    /dev/sda4 /MEDIA vfat defaults 0 0

    that didnt work the user couldnt view it so i tried this

    /dev/sda4 /MEDIA vfat rw,user,auto 0 0

    didnt work either the user cant view the partition at all what commands do i have to pass to use this partition, i wouldnt like to erase and rewrite the partition but if i need to i will, by the way the drive probaly doesnt matter is a 160GB sata western digital hard drive, the partition is 120GB at the end and is a primary

    thanks in advance

    Are you sure that it isn't an NTFS partition. I did that once and it took me forever to figure out why I couldn't write to it. Sorry I don't have more ideas..

    maybe you can try:

    dev/sda4 /MEDIA vfat -o rw,users,auto 0 0

    Note the "s".

    man mount.

    Re: mounting a user accesible partition

    tried that and nothing, i realized maybe its the kerenl, because before i was running sid 2.6.10-686 and now im running sarge 2.6.8-2-686, but that didnt seem to work out

    umask=0222 should work fine, too.

    What keeps that windows partition on your hard drive?
    Games or a program?

    If yes then what?

    Re: mounting a user accesible partition

    In fstab, you just put it in as umask=0222, if you use mount, you need to do
    mount -t fat32 -o umask=0222 /dev/hdX /mnt/diskX
    or similar.
