On my machine (Lenovo ThinkPad w510, Ubuntu 10.10) I have (at least) two logical partitions:
- an ext4 partition to which Ubuntu is installed;
- a FAT32 partition (the bigger one) on which I store all my working data.
For some strange reason, the default file permissions on these partitions differ.
For example, when I download rebar from its git repository, there is different behaviour after I do
git clone https://github.com/RJ/erlang_rebar_example_project.git:
- on ext4 partition I just do
cd rebar && makeand it works;
- on FAT32 I can not do
make, because all the files inside the cloned
rebarfolder have the following permission:
-rw-r--r--. If I do
sudo chmod 777 -R rebarthe file permissions don't change.
What is wrong here?
