I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box with an EXT4 partition. This partition is set to automatically mount in
/etc/fstab. For the purposes of this post, we'll call it:
root can create/delete files/directories on the root filesystem of
foo. For other users to perform file/io on this volume,
root needs to create a directory and
chmod the permissions to others.
I would like to mount the volume such that anybody would be able to read/write to the volume without the need of
Below is my
/dev/sda8 /media/foo ext4 rw,user,exec 0 0
The entry originally had
defaults instead of
rw,user,exec. I added the additional entries, namely,
rw so any user can read/write.
fstab entry does not work. It mounts fine, but it still requires
root to intervene.
And, just in case anybody asks, simply running:
chmod -R 777 * on
root does not work.
