Feature changed by: Michael Loeffler (sprudel24)
Feature #305723, revision 3
Title: Allow to set the owner of a partition

- openSUSE-11.2: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE-11.2: Duplicate of #305075
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Rajko Matovic (rajko_m)

Description:
If a user buys a new external harddrive and partitions it via YaST he
will not be able to write on it, since the filesystem is owned by root.
A normal user would need to know about how to use konsole and which
command to use in order to change the owner. It would be a lot easier,
if the user could change the owner within the partitioning module. Of
course this should not be possible for system-partitions such as / and
/usr etc, yet /windows and /media, as well as /home/xyz/ should be
fine. The problem is not trivial as it is not enough to change fstab.
