    ext3 removable media


    Hallo, I'm new to this forum, so please be kind ;-D

    I've an external usb disk formatted with ext3 filesystem on a Debian Etch. Gnome automount recognize and mount the device, but it seems to have only root write access. How can I tell the system to mount any ext3 removable media with "user" option?

    Thanks a lot ^_^

    you need to edit your /etc/fstab
    make it look something like
    Code:
    /dev/xxx 	/ext3 	  	rw,user,auto 	1	1

    I know this, but how to make it works for *every* ext3 formatted removable usb drive?

    The USB drive will be usually named the same for all USB removeable drive

    This is ok only if you plug a single usb device at once. I want something a bit more useful than just putting an fstab line for every device I'll connect. Is there a way to tell the system that every usb device has to be mounted with "user" option?
