It is a very bad idea and not necessary at all for the device node to
have world-writable permissions. Keep it at 600 or 660 (whatever your
other disk devices have).
drwxrwxrwx 3 root root 4096 Sep 15 21:25 HDB2
But I can not make a ordinary directory on it.
What am I not doing?
It says riht here:
[root@pacman mnt]# mkdir -m 777 /mnt/HDB2/PICTURES
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/HDB2/PICTURES': Read-only file
The filesystem is mounted read-only. If you didn't mount it yourself
read-only, the kernel could have changed it to read-only as a
precautionary measure if errors were encountered on the filesystem. I
suggest you unmount it and check for errors.
Check for kernel errors on the device:
Check the filesystem for errors:
fsck -f /dev/hdb2
If all is well, re-mounting it read-write:
mount -o rw /dev/hdb2
