I'm trying to mount an ext3 file system from another Linux installation so that the user, not root, will have full access to all the files. (I really do need user to have access to those files, because I would like to use them from another computer via sshfs, and sshfs will only give the user's access rights to the files.)
If I run
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/whatever all files are only accessible by root.
I've also tried
mount -o nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sda1 /mnt/whatever as instructed by a SuperUser question discussing ext4 but that fails with an error, and
EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option "uid=1000" or missing value
How can I mount the filesystem?
