Cannot automount NTFS USB drive with /etc/fstab entry
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with the latest version of ntfs-3g and I want to automount my external USB NTFS hard drive.
The kicker is that I need it to mount with the 'sync' option enabled, which means I need an entry for this drive in my /etc/fstab and as soon as I have that entry in the fstab file I receive the 'Only root can mount..' error box when I plug in the drive.
I have run the gambit with this, doing everything that's been posted, and still it's spitting this error message at me.
This is my /etc/fstab entry: /dev/disk/by-label/bertha /media/bertha ntfs-3g sync,rw 0 0
although I have tried it with various options
This is my version of NTFS-3G:
ntfs-3g 2010.5.22 external FUSE 28 - Third Generation NTFS Driver
Configuration type 1, XATTRS are on, POSIX ACLS are off
I have tried compiling ntfs-3g with internal and external FUSE libraries, editing my /etc/fuse.conf to allow users to mount
I have followed the instructions herE: http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs.../#unprivileged
I have added my user account to the 'disk' group
I have made sure that I have perms to the mount point
I'm at my ropes end after spending my entire afternoon trying to resolve this.. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated
