using a partition (or same folder) with RedHat and WinXP
« on: January 06, 2004, 07:35:26 PM »

for example, i use red hat.:P  but my little brother uses winxp because he does?t know anything about computing and all the time he uses the computer he uses eMule (for windows):?

the problem is how should be a partition for use the same Temp and Incoming folders for eMule in xp and aMule in red hat.

ive tried to use for aMule the shared folders:
/mnt/winxp/c:/program files/emule/incoming and temp but i have problems with permissions. what can i do? because i donŽt want to use diferent folders and downloads for each operating system if i can use the same!     :D

/mnt/winxp/c:/program files/emule/incoming

1. theres no : in linux, like c:
2. better don't use space in folder names, like program files etc. move your incom. and temp somewhere else

Dunno if you have solved your problem yet or not ....
but well i just want to point out something that is the usual problem when trying something like you're trying to do. I dunno how experienced you are but n00bs usually wonder why they cannot write to their windows partition in Linux, even if they're logged in with root. Well that's because they don't know that they need to install "captive" and mount the partition using that to gain full NTFS write support. Sorry if that wasn't your problem, but usually in those cases it is.

When you want to write on the partition without root (I hope you want!!  8o), then edit your "etc/fstab" file as follows:

Code: [Select]
/dev/hdaX       /mnt/windows          vfat           user,uid=XXX,gid=xxx       0 0
/dev/hdaN       /mnt/windows2         ntfs           user,uid=XXX,gid=xxx       0 0

Remember to change X, N, XXX, xxx values with your one.

Hint: uid is your user ID, see "man usermod" for help! Same for gid (Group ID) "man groupmod"...

Hope this helps you...
