I have installed 2 linux distributions, Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04. I have a partition formated in ext4 filesystem and i mounted using the
/etc/fstab file on
/mnt/files/ mountpoint. It mounts correctly in both distros but i have one problem with permissions. This exapmple illustrates it:
If i create a folder
/mnt/files/test/ using mkdir in this common partition from Ubuntu, when im on Fedora and try to create a directory inside this folder, say
/mnt/files/test/test2 it says that i dont have the permissions. I have read som solutions, and the most of them says that i have to change the permissions or the owning of the folders using recursively chmod or chown but the problem is that i have to do this every time that i create a new file or folder on the other distro.
I want to know if is there any option on the fstab file that help me to achieve this. I have tried the uid, gid and umask options but it looks like this options cant be used on a ext filesystem.
The entry en my
/etc/fstab file is:
UUID=<uuid> /mnt/files ext4 defaults 0 0
I hope you can help me.
