Default Can FAT32 partition be writable by ordinary user ?

I use `mount_msdos -o rw /dev/wd0j /mnt/J` to mount a FAT32 partition. But it is writable only by root user.

BTW, why do all directory name in FAT32 become upper case ?

Sincerely!

See the mount_msdos(8) man page. You can set user/group as well as force long file names.

The following commnad works:
#mount_msdos -u sw2wolf -o rw /dev/wd0j /mnt/J

However, how to add it to /etc/fstab?
/dev/wd0j /mnt/J msdos rw,u=sw2wolf,noatime 1 2
will report "mount_msdos: -o u: option not supported" .

Sincerely!

Use -u.

See the example of the mfs mount and -s in fstab(5).

It works. I will learn to `man` in OpenBSD.
