View Full Version : [ubuntu] permissions on 2nd hard drive after boot

June 3rd, 2009, 12:22 PM
I added second SATA drive.

I have a mount point /media/datadisk

I have added it to the fstab.

When I boot, the drive is mounted, but only root has write access to it.

If I sudo and umount it, then mount -a, it is again mounted but regular users now have write access.

This is n 9.04, desktop.

What I want is for users to have write access after boot.

sudo chown yourusername /media/datadisk

Then set the permissions so others can read/write

I'll try that, but I did a chmod 777 on it as root.

Shouldn't that accomplish the same thing?
