I have a USB FAT32 drive that is on /dev/sda2. I've mounted it as /media/bigdrive however, I get permission denied whenever I try to touch a file there as a non root user.
When I run
mount I can see this line:
/dev/sda2 on /media/bigdrive type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)
My /etc/fstab has this line:
/dev/sda2 /media/bigdrive vfat rw,user,exec,umask=000 0 0
I've tried running
sudo chmod 777 /media/bigdrive and
sudo chmod 777 -R /media/bigdrive
Neither one changes anything.
Is there anything I'm missing?
This is on a rasberry pi running raspbian BTW.
ls -ld /media/bigdrive?
gidvalues, e.g. append
id) to the options in
fstab. A better choice would be to make
udevhandle this or at least refer to the partition by its UUID name (see
ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid) and instead of
mount /dev/sda2or something else?
