I have a usb memory stick that I partitioned and formatted as an ext2 filesystem.
I have created a line in fstab to mount it in my home directory.
LABEL=Lexar-256 /home/gordon/usbstik ext2 rw,noatime,user 0 0
When I insert the mem stick into the usb port it mounts ok in my home directory
but I have no write permissions and the directory (usbstik) now belongs to root.
The output of the mount command shows
/dev/sdf1 on /home/gordon/usbstik type ext2 (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,noatime,user=gordon)
As a user I can mount and umount the device but cannot write to it.
If a memory stick filesystem is vfat the permissions set are different from when the filesystem is ext2 and I can write to it.
I suspect that the udev rules are doing this but cannout seem to find where
these mount permissions are set.
