I'm currently running RHEL 5.5, and I installed the
ntfs-3g utility from here: http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-download/. I have also followed their instructions for auto-mounting NTFS USB drives here: http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-faq/#plugandplay.
The problem I'm experiencing is that
ntfs-3g is automatically mounting as
root. In order for me to obtain write support, I need to navigate to the mounted device as
root, and perform write actions with elevated privileges.
Is there a way to mount USB NTFS volumes automatically without needing to
sudo every write command?
EDIT: To clarify, these are not devices being mounted at bootup. These are hot-swappable USB sticks and HDD's. They mount automatically, but only
root can write.
