NTFS-3G permission problems


  • Copying files into the ntfs drive gives a bunch of errors about cannot change permission etc
  • The NTFS partition is mounted as root:root regardless of the uid,gid options on fstab


  • fstab: ntfs-3g   noatime,user,users,gid=users,uid=blackrose,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8
  • RESTART (Dont know why this works, but it does. umount/mount does not work after changing the fstab)
