how to give permission to read and write an IO port

Post by Ralph Blac » Fri, 22 Oct 1999 04:00:00

I am trying to write a program which will run as root, but not as part
of the kernel.  The
program must read and write an IO port.  How do I do this in the Power
PC port of linux
What is the ioperm call for the PPC linux?



1. Problems mounting smbfs/ntfs in /etc/fstab to give read-write permissions

Hi All,

I have the following line in my /etc/fstab to mount an NTFS drive:

//HONS/RobertMarkBram   /phdWeb                 smbfs  
rw,username=rob,password=XXXXXX,uid=gid=500 0 0

I have that id, but I still do not have write permissions:

robertmarkbram - /phdWeb
uid=500(robertmarkbram) gid=500(robertmarkbram)

robertmarkbram - /phdWeb
$touch temp
touch: creating `temp': Permission denied

robertmarkbram - /phdWeb
$ls -lad .
drwxr-xr-x    1 65535    root         4096 Sep  3 17:19 .

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong?

Any advice would be most appreciated!
