[SOLVED] re.: SCSI external HD
has anyone come across permission problems when trying to mount SCSI external drives?
I bought a 1TB external hard drive and configuring it on my windows partition first (dual-boot laptop) I discovered that those big external storage use SCSI technology - then I booted Slackware12.2 and wrote the /etc/fstab as follow:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/hd auto noauto,user 0 0
and I noticed that despite me being able to mount the disc as 'user' , i can only read or write in it if i'm logged in as 'root' (not even being the 'super user' by running 'su') - I have run 'chmod -R namedir/file' but still not able to write to the disc - if i take a look at eh permission for it, I get:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2002-03-16 07:34 hd (when partition is umounted)
then i mount the partition and this is what happens:
drwx------ 1 root root 4096 2009-01-22 00:25 hd (partition mounted)
I thought that it was because I was mounting the disc on a dir that belonged to 'root' (/mnt/hd), so i created my own dir on my own partition and still the same problem -
is this something peculiar of SCSI drives? I reckon that i have done that needs be done in terms of permission - any ideas?
