OK, I've got a tricky question.
I have a plain-old-vanilla hfs partition on one of my drives. For the last
year, it's mounted *just fine* under SuSE. I've never been able to give
anybody other than root write permissions to it, but since all I really use
it for is storing mp3's (and the occasional Linux-MacOS file transfer), all
anybody needs is read permissions.
About a week ago, I had a whopper of a system crash, for reasons that I still
haven't figured out. I was forced to do a hard-reboot. Since then, nobody
except for root has been able to access my hfs partition. Anybody else gets a
"permission denied" message. I've tried fiddling with /etc/fstab, I've
chgrp and chown and chmod (both on the mount-point-directory and directly on
the /dev/ object), nothing works. I'm practically tearing my beard out in
frustration... it's probably something really obvious that's right in front
of my face... any ideas?
