fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied

According to this wiki:

http://wiki.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?id=ntfsmount

I should be able to add the following line into my fstab (I'm running Fedora Core 5)

/dev/hda1 /mnt/c ntfs-fuse fmask=0111,dmask=0,succeed_chmod 0 0

I've modified it to mount my other drive:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs-fuse fmask=0111,dmask=0,succeed_chmod 0 0

which I can successfully do as root, however its not mounting at boot time - the error is:

fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied

Any reasons why this drive won't mount at boot time? I have to manually type "mount /mnt/windows" to mount the drive in a terminal.

How would I be able to mount this drive as root at boot time?

Hello,
After editing your Fstab, were you able to view your ntsf drive at all? I've read in some other posts about having to disable SElinux AND becoming root before you attempt to add ntsf support. I would suggest taking a look at this: http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...ion_notes.html
That is the guide that i followed to add ntsf support and to get my external hard drive working correctly. Also, make sure nothing silly is going on like not turning on your external hard drive because then your computer will obviously not recognize it. which happened to me once.

Nope - I'm able to see the drive fine if I am root and I type "mount /mnt/windows" after my machine has booted.

Did you also download the correct NTSF rpm for your kernel (as stated in the directions above) before editing your Fstab?

I got it it to work - I had to replace what I had in fstab with this:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,defaults,umask=0222 0 0

I guess what i had in there before was wrong...

I've mounted it as:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows ntfs rw,defaults,umask=0222 0 0

but I can't write to it? Any ideas?
