Re: permissions and waiting on user input

I am not using the newest mc, but isnt there a switch
'Preserve Attributes' used just for that purpose?

Yes, this feature is present, but it's on by default, and once you start
copying, there is no way to change it short of stopping the copying.

Not only that, but in this case it does not seem to work at all.

That's why the "Ignore all" button is so often asked for, and that's why
it's in the TODO list for version 4.6.1.

This is good. :^)

Of course, there is a way to mount vfat partitions so that they ignore the
permission problems.  The option is called "quiet", see "man mount" for

This does not work either, at least when accessing a FAT partition on another Win98 machine through Samba. :^(
