Easy FSTAB Question - How do I set read, write, and execute permissions on a USB drive?
Posted on 2009-07-10
I am just learning how FSTAB works. Here's currently what my line looks like in FSTAB specifying what to do with my USB drive. I just need to make sure that all users, guests, and even their pet rats for all I care to have read, write, and execute permissions on this drive automatically. I want the system (I'm using Ubuntu 9.04) to boot up and give all users and guests read, write and execute permissions for folders and files that are currently on the drive, and any other files and folders that any other use would create.
I'm using this for a server application, and this application (Fog Project) needs everything blown wide open on this drive. Please don't lecture me on security. I'm well aware of the "risks" involved with such permissions. I can lock those down after I get this thing working if I decide that is necessary. :-)
So in short, when I do ls -l I want to see everything that currently is, or ever will be, on this drive to show up in GREEN. :-) Thanks to whoever helps!
Here's my FSTAB line as it is currently:
/dev/sdb1 /images/USB_Storage auto 0 0
