newbie question about executable
June 21, 2012 08:55AM
For my Dockstar, I have a USB stick for Debian and a HDD for data storage ( mount as /mnt/data). When I try to run a script form /mnt/data/some subdirectory, I got "Permission denied" but the same script will run fine if I put it anywhere on the USB stick. What is the reason I can't run script on my data drive?

A file to be executed needs to be exectutable. You can check that by using ls -l.


From left to right: no-stick-bit, user can read-write-execute, group can read-execute, world can read-execute.

If your file is executable and does not execute, maybe your partition is mounted non-executable.
Maybe the directory you use has no rights to execute files.

There are no silly questions

Thanks. Remount the partition to enable exec fixed the problem.
