Does anyone know of a way to make it so that
A: any user can mount a device, IE a ntfs harddrive
and B: Anyone can read that mounted directory
i did #man mount
and it gave me some stuff about how to put a flag in my fstab to make it so any user can mount it and it didnt work, so, any help would be greatly appreciated
Can you post your /etc/fstab and point out the partition that you want anyone to be able to mount?
*edit* Actually did you add user to the <opts> column? If that's what you did, then post the /etc/fstab...if not, try it. :D
/dev/hda1 is the one I want anyone to be able to mount/read
dev/hdb1 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 /home/wrayth/Windoze ntfs ro,user,noauto,unhide 1 0
What is the error you get when you try to mount as a user? And can you mount the drive as root?
