Running Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty), I have mounted an exFAT formatted USB drive. While attempting to
git clone a repo onto it, I've run into the following error:
Cloning into 'rschedule'... error: chmod on /media/john/John/apps/rschedule/.git/config.lock failed: Function not implemented fatal: could not set 'core.filemode' to 'false'
Cloning the repo onto my computer's local file system works normally. I can also otherwise access the USB drive normally (i.e. read / create files).
Any ideas as to what may be going wrong?
Additional information which is hopefully irrelevant: Ubuntu is running on a Chromebook using crouton.
A possibly related question: How do I use 'chmod' on an NTFS (or FAT32) partition?. Unfortunately, assuming it is related, I haven't been able to figure out how to translate that question / answers to my problem.
