General :: Auto-mount A Vfat Partition As User?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a vfat partition under RedHat RHEL5 that I currently must mount manualy after each boot. I would like it to auto-mount but I cannot find a way to do this without it becoming ro except for root. My other partitions auto-mount just fine. I have tried the vfat as a separate partition and as a VLM logical drive (as it currently is).

The fstab statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat noauto,users 0 0"

allows me to mount it as a user. The statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat defaults 1 2"

is what I use for other VLM partitions, but for the vfat it seems to only allow root access. Manually mount this partition is OK, it's just that I have sometimes forgotten and then it is not included in backups. What do I need to do to make the vfat auto-mount as accessible for a user?

Ubuntu :: Change Default Mount Options For Removalbe (vfat) Devices?

Mar 4, 2010

I want to change the default mount options for removable devices, especially vfat devices, to have shortname=lower instead of the default shortname=mixed mount option. I googled around, and found references to /system/storage/default_options/vfat/mount_options gnome configuration option, but I don't seem to have this option set, actually, I don't seem to have a /system/storage tree in gconf-editor at all. searching in gconf-editor doesn't really yield any results.

General :: Mounting VFAT As User In Fedora 14

Jan 27, 2011

I can't seem to mount my local VFAT partition with username ownership; it is consistently mounted as daemon. I've tried to CHOWN and CHGRP the mount point of /media/SHARED (its location), but that doesn't work. I should include the reason in case you have other suggestions that are alternative to changing ownership on the mounted VFAT drive:

In my old Fedora 9, I ran Eudora under Wine. The program lived on my VFAT partition. I could hence run Eudora under both Windows and Fedora, which was really nice - even though I hardly boot into Windows anymore. While I did notice the username and group name were the same as they are under Fedora 14 fstab mounting - daemon - it still worked without a hitch. To note, the partition was also automounted in Fedora 9 in fstab.I just upgraded to Fedora 14. When I automount the drive through fstab, Eudora will not launch. Yet when I manually mounted the drive (and I noticed that the username and group are my local username, not daemon), Eudora launches fine. So while my solution, mounting the drive manually when Fedora 14 starts, does in fact work, it is a bit of a pain. Luckily I don't reboot too often!

In any case, I wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions. Maybe it's just a mounting syntax issue; but as for mounting syntax in fstab, I used the same line as my F9 fstab.The line I used was: /dev/sda3 /media/SHARED vfat umask=0000,dmask=0000,uid=0002,gid=users,users 0 0

Ubuntu Servers :: Allow User To Mount Nfs Filesystem?

Jul 8, 2011

I want the users of the other machines, which have accounts in my server, to mount their home directories in the server. I managed to do everything, except that for the moment I can only mount their home directories by being the superuser of the server, a privilege that I don't want to give to the users. Also, I don't want their home directories to be mounted automatically. Thus, from a "normal" filesystem share, I want to: 1-The home directories of user in other machines be mountable in the user areas of the server (I can do that already).

2-I want that the users be able to mount by hand their directories, so that the directories are not permanently mounted. Currently, I can only mount and umount being the superuser of the server. I don't want to give superuser privileges to all server users.

3-I don't want their directories to be mounted on startup (otherwise I could simply add the mounts to /etc/fstab). Thus, does anyone knows how can I give the users the privilege only to mount a specific filesystem?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Cdrom As Regular User

May 17, 2010

I have a problem to mount my cdrom as a regular user. After inserting a cd, I receive this error message:"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:mount: must be superuser to use mount" After mounting the cdrom as superuser with "sudo mount /media/cdrom".I can access the cd also as regular user. This behavior is inconvenient and I would like to be able to mount the cdrom as user.Honestly, I do not have the experience to tell if this should be fine or not. Do you have any advice for me to fix this problem? I am running Ubuntu 9.10 with a 2.6.32-02063209-generic kernel.

Fedora :: Mount Nfs Drive As Other User

Nov 19, 2009

This is not a particular Fedora issue, but I take the chance

How can I mount a network (nfs) drive (on a RHEL4 machine) from my FC11, but as another user.

E.g. I would like to mount the folder /home/userA on the network drive. But my local username is userB. Hence I don't seem to have access to mount the drive.

sudo mount -t nfs eda4:/home/userA /mnt/eda4 gives the message: "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting (null)"

I have put a broadcast address in /etc/exports and started an nfs daemon on the remote server.

General :: CD / DVD Disk Won't Mount When I Am Only A User - Fix This?

Jul 17, 2011

I am truly sorry if this has already been answered, but I don't think the question was asked in EXACTLY THE SAME WAY, maybe?

I installed Slackware 13.37 on my Dell desktop pc (I don't think that the model information is relevant in this case...), and I was able to insert CD's and DVD's which would then be mounted AUTOMATICALLY so that I could then browse the contents etc. I can STILL do this, whether or not I am logged-in as "root" or as a "normal" user...

Now here is my problem : I JUST installed Slackware 13.37 on my Toshiba notebook (a Satellite 210, in this case) TODAY. Now, I can insert the same CD's / DVD's into the drive and have them automount as the "root" user, but when I log in as a simple user, I get errors telling me that they can NOT BE MOUNTED! The messages on quite long and complex, but I can paste an copy into a secondary post if that will help. For my part, what the error message says is a lot of gibberish!

I have examined the user information on both my desktop AND laptop computers to see if there were any major differences, and there are NONE EXCEPT FOR ONE : My "user" account on my desktop is user # 1000, while on my notebook it is 100. The DEFAULT offered in both cases was 1000 when I created the accounts, but I did not see
why the next user in the list should be over 999 higher than the last one listed, so on the notebook I did not accept the default offered, and instead choose to use # 100. Was that wrong? Why does Slackware start the first created user at such a large user number?

I did NOT do anything to allow the automount of optical disks as a user on my desktop pc (at least, not to my knowledge...) that I have not done on the notebook!

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount External Ntfs Hd As User AND Being Able To Share?

Mar 14, 2010

I have an ntfs external hd; I can mount and use it fine, without entry in fstab, but not share stuff. That is to say: I can use nautilus / thunar to share folders on it without errors, but they are not accessible via the network. The issue may be that the mount point has permissions 700. I can solve that by Code:sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/Databank -o umask=0,nls=utf8or by setting umask=022 in fstab, but then I can't mount it as user anymore; if I set fstab to

/dev/sdb1 /media/Databank ntfs-3g user,umask=022,nls=utf8,defaults 0 0
I get this when I try to mount it as user in the filebrowser:

Ubuntu :: Vfat Automount Doubles Boot Time?

May 7, 2010

I just discovered that automounting a fat32 partition (which i keep for exchanging file between Ubuntu & Win) slows down my boot time, from around 25secs to 1 minute. It does not behave in the same way for a ntfs partition (the vista partition itself).

Here it is my fstab:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda3 during installation
UUID=6b0de3ef-fea6-4be4-b60e-1926db6aacaf / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
#/media/data was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=01AF-17F4 /media/data vfat utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1

General :: Mount And Umount As User Without Fstab?

Jul 19, 2011

I am writing this software that creates virtual block device nodes almost like loop does. I need to allow non-superusers to mount and umount filesystems from these devices. I don't know the names of the block device nodes beforehand so i can't use fstab entries to add "user" or "owner" flags there.

Currently i solve this by providing a small suid helper tool that verifies that this is indeed "my" block device the user is trying to mount and then just call /sbin/mount or /sbin/umount to do the job. This is definitely better than setting a suid bit for the whole program but not really perfect.

General :: /bin/mount Mounts Point As A Different User ?

A directory that once looked like this:

Goes to this:

It changes from root to www (another user on my system) and I have no idea why.

When I look at the /mount/procs file, I see this:

So it looks like the uid is correct...

I believe this is what is causing my rsync scripts to fail (they only copy over directories and not the files in those directorys and I get a lot of permissions failed errors)

All of this is run as root in cron jobs

As a note, here is a sample rsync command:

p.s. does this only happen to certain distros, or is a part of the Linux kernel?
