#1: cannot do chmod

Posted on 2003-05-28 15:26:11 by Earl

Good day...

I need help on this... I mounted my windows partition on
the /mnt/win directory. The strange thing is that there is
no execute permission for the group and others category
on the /mnt/win directory. So I tried to `chmod -v go+x /mnt/win'
and it printed out that the chmod was successful. BUT when
I do an `ls -l /mnt' the file permissions were unchanged. This is the first
time I encountered this problem and I really have no idea why
this is happening.

The reason why I want to place an execute permission on the /mnt/win
directory is that I want other non-root users to access the windows
partition.

Does this have to do with the mount options? If it does, I placed the
contents of my fstab below in case you guys want to find anything wrong
with it. I don't know anything else that might cause this problem.

[these are the contents of my fstab]

/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda7 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda3 /mnt/win vfat defaults 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Add a umask=0 to the mount options ie:

/dev/hda3 /mnt/win vfat defaults,umask=0 0 0

Try this line out:

/dev/hda3 /mnt/win vfat defaults,umask=000,mode=777 1 0

Set 'mode=' to whatever permissions you want the files to be.
