I've got an external drive, and I'd like to have a linux partition on it. I formatted everything correctly on one machine with Fedora20 (I have one
ntfs and one
ext4 partition), but when I plug it in my older machine with Fedora12, it doesn't automount the
ext4 partition. I have found a solution that involves putting something like the following in
UUID=0123-abcd /media/MYEXTDISC ext4 ...,umask=000,dmask=000,...
But this has two problems:
It doesn't help since the old machine with Fedora12 does not support
I would have to do something like that on every linux computer I use, which is impossible, since some of them are at work where I can't modify
My idea was that the the filesystem could provide some option like "treat all non-root files as non-root files" or "give all non-root files the rights
777. However, I don't know if this is possible with
ext4. I can change the filesystem to anything linuxy, the HDD is empty at this moment.
