I am running 9.04 on the SheevaPlug. I am attempting to mount a 4GB SD Card, but cannot seem to mount it with writable permissions. I can create edit files as root, but am unable to change the owner or permissions with chmod or chown, the commands do not seem to stick. I am using the following commands:
I can then see that the card is mounted with
mount -t vfat -o rw /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/sdcard
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/mmcblk0p1 3860600 8 3860592 1% /mnt/sdcard
The card is not in the physical 'lock' position, as as I can write to the card as root, that should verify this. But I can't write to the card as any other user.
:~# cd /mnt/
:/mnt# chmod 777 sdcard/
:/mnt# ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 1969-12-31 19:00 sdcard
Also I am not sure why the date is off on the card, it is correct on my actual system.
