hawklord Posted June 21, 2010 Report Share Posted June 21, 2010 (edited) hi, (sorry if this is in the wrong section, move at your will) this isn't really a problem - at least i don't think it is, but its an annoyance i'm running mandriva 2010.0 one, fully updated and working as it should, the annoyance is i have a fixed ntfs storage drive which is owned by root, when i transfer file to it i get a message saying "could not change permissions for /media/sdb2/any.file" i have to click 'ok' for the message to go, its a bit annoying if i'm transfering, say, 10 files, now as an experiment i opened konqueror as root and changed the owner manualy to a folder that is on sdb2 - wouldn't change, so i typed in a root terminal chown -r dave /media/sdb2/foldername still no change, do i need to change ownership of the whole partition ?, can i do it editing fstab ? here is the line in my fstab UUID=2A1C807A1C8042B5 /media/sdb2 ntfs-3g defaults,umask=000 0 0 i don't know whether this will help [dave@localhost ~]$ cd /media/sdb2 [dave@localhost sdb2]$ ls -l total 10456 drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4096 2010-06-20 19:41 drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16384 2010-06-19 00:04 [dave@localhost sdb2]$ (i've removed file names and file entries as they all say drwxrwxrwx 1 root root) thanks for any help Edited June 23, 2010 by hawklord Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
