View Full Version : windows partition access

I have installed Knoppix on my HD, and it's working fine :D
Just a problem for the hda1winslow98 access wich is mounted in root mode.
I tried to chmod 755 it, but, no result, I can accessing to it only as su.

if someone know the solution... :idea:

Did you try as su or root):

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 -oremount,rw

This worked for me.

I tried the command, but it has not worked
I found that in /etc/fstab, the hda1 entry was preceded by a # and the mode was noauto
After deleting # and converting noauto by auto & rebooting, it's working fine :D
but...the floppy have the same problem, and the /etc/fstab entry is

/dev/fd0 /floppy vfat defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022 0 0 (with no #)

is it the same problem ? 2 advice are better than 1:!:

Normally you have to mount a floppy disk by hand, because each time you change the floppy it has to be unmounted before you remove it and mounted after youput the new one in.

Yes it works, and I'm happy that KNOPPIX does'nt use automount by default ; it's a source of problems with a lot of "big" linux distros.

Thank you :)
