I had similar problems - and to fix them I did this:
Edit the file: /etc/fstab
Add ânoaclâ as an option for mount points - I just let all mount points be âwindows defaultâ and leave it.
It is in my opinion, the ACL stuff was well intended but ended up causing big problems for me.
Windows is just a very different beast, and does not implement POSIX very well, and no attempt at putting a square peg in a round hole ends well.
I think what Cygnus, then Redhat - etc has done is a marvelous and great good - but this ACL stuff - yuck.
I firmly believe âACL = ONâ by default is wrong headed.
