sorry for the basic question,
I have this problem,
as juan2 user (or under any other user name), I have
no write permissions in my /home/juan2 directory.
$ls -la /home
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 16384 Dec 31 1969 ./
drwxr-xr-x 19 root root 4096 Nov 30 01:17 ../
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 8192 Nov 15 20:32
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 8192 Nov 29 23:01
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 8192 Nov 30 01:11
Even as root I can not change ownership or group of
root at drakstar:/home/juan2# chown juan2 xpm1.tgz
chown: xpm1.tgz: Operation not permitted
My /home directory is located in a vfat partition,
since I want to easily use those files with Windows95
applications running in the same computer.
$ cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda8 /home vfat defaults 1 0
I would assume that "defaults" in the options filed
gives me read-and-write permissions. I guess that if I
were the only user, I could specify the corresponding
values for uid, gid and mode in the options field in
Is there a general solution, for allowing rw
permissions in a vfat /home ?
(my computer is running Slackware 7.1;
my hda hardrive is a 8 gig Western Digital that can
not be recognized by the mb bios, and needs EZ-drive
to be booted;
I use loadlin to boot Linux)
