mount -t vfat with write permissions

Hello Volumio Friends,

can someone tell me, how I mount a USB-Flash on the Volumio? Until now it was impossible with manual mount or via fstab.
Somehow it seems that the securityoptions dont let mount USB with writable permissions for the user “volumio”

I just want to run fadecut to store music on a USB-Flash for car-use later on.
Thanks a lot for an introducion about the security-rules on volumio and masbe a solution how to mount - even with a command in /etc/rc.local.


Did you try;
User Pi?
User root?

I can mount with sudo no problem.
sudo mount -t vfat uid=volumio,gid=volumio /dev/sda1 /media/SD16G

But later on if I start fadecut as user volumio I dont have write-permission. But somehow there should be a solution as user volumio.
Maybe today I will try the thing as user pi, masbe that works.

Sorry the complete string was

sudo mount -t vfat uid=volumio,gid=volumio,umask=007 /dev/sda1 /media/SD16G

Well, I guess I got the answer.

If the USB-Flash is plugged-in during startup, the volumio mount_all script will mount it automaticly as /mnt/USB and later on you can’t mount it with other permissions.

So my rc.local looks like this (the part for mounting a usb-flash) and works right now:

sudo umount /dev/sda1 sudo mount -t vfat -o umask=022,uid=1001,gid=1001,utf8 /dev/sda1 /mnt/USB

Thanks for thinking about and hope I can help someone else.
