OK, I feel like a total newbie again, but I can't figure this out... I cannot get floppies to be mounted by normal users.
this is what I did: $ su # systctl vfs.usermount=1 # chmod 777 /dev/fd0 # chmod 777 /dev/fd0a # exit $ mount /dev/fd0a /mnt/flop mount: /dev/fd0a: Operation not permitted root mounts everything fine. I know that there is a port wich make msdos-flops usable, but I do not want that :) I use FreeBSD-formatted floppies also, and then there is this backup-drive I do not mount at boottime but only when I need it... same problem there. The FreeBSD-FAQ tells me exactly (well, to some extend) what I did above.... Google also didn't help me out... what the heck am I doing wrong? I'm going to install a FreeBSD-system for a friend who is a regular Window$-user but who wants something more stable. Somehow it feels kinda odd to tell someone who only worked within GUI's that when he wants to use his floppydrive or cdrom he has to open a xterm, type su and his password and then to type mount_msdos /dev/fd0a /mnt/flop.... so I really would like to make life more userfriendly for him :) (please CC me, I'm not a member here) -- tcGB <>< Fi-Ji ><> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
