I know, this question is asked a lot of times. Just searched for several hours, but nothing i did worked.
The thing i want to do is setup a little NAS. As a test i took a memory stick to serve as storage. The memory stick is formatted with a fat32 filesystem. Because fat32 is a windows filesystem it's not compatible with the way of changing permissions the linux way. In the several hours i searched the web i came across many different ways to change the permissions in the mounting process, but not the right one, every time the permissions are 755 for my mounted directory.
my fstab looks like: /dev/something /mnt/something vfat ... 0 0
I tried many things in the option field. At first just defaults, then the write option, also tried fmask, dmask and umask options.
To test if the fstab wasn't the error I also tried mounting with the mount command using the fstab options.
Anybody knows the real solution? Just using NTFS filesystem? Use other mount options?
