Unable to change User rights on mounted hard disk

#5

My hard disk was automatically mounted in '/media/pi/XXX' and this seemed to be the problem because I could not change the user as long as it was mounted under '/pi/....' Now I mount the drive using an entry in fstab in '/media/XXX' and everything works as expected. It seems that even at root I cannot make any changes in folders under '/pi' .....

A shor warning: During testing I was able to kill my whole system (it did not boot anymore) with an entry in fstab which I thought was correct but seemed to contain an error. I had to reload the image on the SD card and redo all steps......


If ever that happens again, instead of formatting your SD card and starting from scratch (even if it's a great learning curve), I recommend you boot into single-user mode and try to edit the fstab file directly. I've had to do it a few times when I'd messed something up.
