I mounted hdb1 at /mnt/Win and hdb5 at /mnt/win98 and work fine. the ploblems its when i try to unpack a tar.gz file like xine-libs, it work at my hda = / usr/src but when i try to unpack the file at /mnt/win98/l/ make errors like " xine-lib-1beta cannont change the owner to uid 1001, gid 1001 " not permission to operation
tar out error.
my /etc/fstab file
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/Win vfat rw 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /mnt/win98 vfat rw 0 0
need to know how can fix it , and what i should to do . thz.
Since the FAT filesystem has no support for file ownership, it's only natural that you can't change the owner on a file that is on a FAT file system. Might I suggest first untarring the archive to your Linux partition and then moving the whole tree to your Windows partition?
Although, why would you want to have these things on a Windows partition at all?
cause if i have not enought space in my Hda=fijujitsu 3500mgs would use my other vfat hdb =wester digital 20gs
can i use vfat hdb to install some stuffs like xine for linux or i need ext3 filesystem?
A UNIX filesystem would indeed be to prefer. What user are you when you try to untar it? (ie. are you root or a normal user?)
Try as a normal user instead. That way, tar knows that it cannot change the ownership of files anyway.
i try adding this line at my fstab file conf /etc/fstab
vfat users,quiet,rw 0 0 and its work . its ok now
Oh! I thought there would be such an option for vfat, but I had never seen it until now. Thanks for informing me!
