I need your advice to solve a problem.
I am trying to make a shared partition where to put all media contents to be shared between my computers.
I made a 250 Gb partition on my disk, I formatted it with xfs filesystem (mkfs.xfs /dev/sda7).
Then I made a new mount point where to mount it (/mnt/storage) and I added it to my /etc/fstab as follows:
/dev/sda7 /mnt/storage xfs noatime,auto,rw,users,umask=0222 0 2
I have the following issues:
it is not possible to read the partition through the /media directory. It appears in it as /dev/sda7 but as normal user it is not possible to read and write it.
I was able to make it writable and readable through a
chmod 777 /dev/sda7
but I fear that, while this worked, it was unnecessary (too many permissions for everybody?).
Besides, while booting a message similar to this appears:
bad superblock, bad option....
This message does not seem to harm the system. I can see and write the partition but I believe things can be done better.
Can anyone explain what's wrong with the settings I did?
Thanks in advance
