Re: The not-so-perfect 10.10.10


The possible problem/restriction/bug in ubuntu 10.10 can be automounting the
usb drive without executable permission.

Now that can be fixed by editing /etc/fstab   :
/dev/usbdrive /media/usb vfat umask=0222,auto,users,exec 0 0

Now onwards the USB will have the executable permission and I tested by
running keryx(0.92) and works !!!

But this is a manual solution , I suppose there would be some other better
solution which can make the auto mounting the usb drive with executable
permission as like happens in ubuntu 10.04.
