I recently switched to Fedora 27 Beta (UEFI install, dual-boot with Win 10), and I changed my
/etc/fstab to include the two following lines:
UUID=D0E24ECDE24EB78C /media/DownloadsBin ntfs-3g auto,user,rw,x-gvfs-show 0 0 UUID=4E565C9C565C869D /media/VMs ntfs-3g auto,user,rw,x-gvfs-show 0 0
It should have loaded the devices bearing the given UUIDs into
/media/VMs appropriately with rw permissions, right? Well, since these are Windows partitions, I had to mount them using NTFS-3g. I can see the files, but whenever I even try to create a new folder (e.g. using
mkdir test), I get the error:
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘test’: Read-only file system
The strange part is a similar script worked before on Fedora 26, although I'm not sure if it's got something to do with Fedora 27 Beta (a bug?!) or if there's an error in my code. So, I've come to ask the experts for help!
NOTE : I really don't want to mess around with partition or the folder permissions, especially changing the owner, since Windows started complaining and stopped me from writing to the disk the last time I tried this! I'm hoping there's a better way I can share entire partitions between Win 10 and Fedora 27 Beta without pissing either operating system off?!
Upon further investigation, it turns out that the partitions might be mounted as read-only as confirmed by
[somu@lappyPrime DownloadsBin]$ findmnt /media/DownloadsBin TARGET SOURCE FSTYPE OPTIONS /media/DownloadsBin /dev/sda5 fuseblk ro,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096 [somu@lappyPrime DownloadsBin]$ findmnt /media/VMs TARGET SOURCE FSTYPE OPTIONS /media/VMs /dev/sda6 fuseblk ro,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096
Can anyone tell me what's going on?!
