I'm sorry if this is a FAQ, but I've read all that I can about this
problem, and haven't been able to solve it, so I'm posting to this list.
I'm running Linux 2.2.13mdk (Mandrake), as installed, so I haven't
recompiled. I have a Zip100 drive in the parallel port, with no printer
attached. If I login as root, and do 'insmod parport', followed by 'insmod
ppa', then I can access the Zip drive, as can all users:
/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip vfat users... 0 1
alias scsi_hostadapter ppa
My problem is, I want to allow users to mount and unmount the Zip, and this
just doesn't seem to work. As I said before, the drive works fine
(read/write) if I mount as root. I'm sure this is a FAQ, but I've read
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/kmod.txt, parpart.txt, and modules.txt. I'm
not using kerneld, but kmod instead, if that's relevant.
Does anyone know of an obvious reason this shouldn't be working, or what
file I'm forgetting to modify?
