edited the PolicyKit rule, and even set sdb1 to mount to /media/fantomext in YaST (“Do Not Mount at System Start-up” is unchecked). But despite all this, it’s still not automatically mounting. What’s going on here? :?
And reading man fstab might also tell you the use of the fields in /etc/fstab. The third field (the first *auto *you have) must be the fstype. Now the man fstab page refers to man mount for this. There it says that when *auto *it tries to guess … Better fill in what it is, so there is no guessing. And when you know what it is, you also know better what mount options (the fourth field) are valid for this fstype.
Man, I really wish I could edit posts… Or at least for an hour after the posting. Oh well.
Anyway, here’s my problem now. Though I have access to the drive… Dolphin can open it and I can view files, but I can’t, say, copy a file from my desktop to the external, I get a permission error. So it’s read-only…
uid=value, gid=value and umask=value
Set the file permission on the filesystem. The umask value is given in octal. By default, the files are owned by root and not readable by somebody else.
Well, this is odd. YaST won’t let me add rw to the fstab options… I get error code -3039, which I can’t find any useful info on. Any ideas? I’m stumped. External is still not writable other than by root.
