Re: Mounted partition



Suppose you have the device mounted on, say, /mnt/test. If you issue
"chmod a+rwxt /mnt/test, you should get the desidered result. In fact,
this way you say that /mnt/test is "sticky", i.e. everybody can write on
it. The line below is the output of "ls -l | grep tmp" in my "/". Note
the final "t" in the permissions...

drwxrwxrwt   16 root root  20480 Dec 23 14:22 tmp

It surely works with directories, I guess it should in your situation,
maybe with some slight changes.

Best regards.
