I have a dual boot system with Wiindows 8 and Linux Mint Cinnamon.
I made a NFS partition what is accessed by Linux as well as by Windows.
Because I am still installing and experimenting, in that partition I made a common W8-Linux_common Folder wheer I keep my logging, documentation etc.
I made a link to this folder and copied that link on the Desktop.
When I startup the system (in Linux) and a hit the link than I get the message Broken Link. I discovered the W8data where the folder is incorporated was not yet mounted. When I go into file manager and hit W8data, than this filesystem is mounted correctly and the link is functionning.
Looking now at the mount sutuation I found that following filesystem was mounted after the initial /etc/fstab
/dev/sdb7 on /media/bob/W8data type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096) [W8data]
So I tried to adapt the /etc/fstab and added a sentence for mounting this extra filesystem, checked wit mount -a (no errors)
setence I added (and I believe , no I am quite sure, completely incorrect)
/dev/sdb7 /media/bob/W8data fuseblk rw,nosuid,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096 0 0
but no system nomore!!!
Lucky I could restart with the recovery, remounted the root as rw istead of ro and copied my original /etc/fstab (what I had saved).
My questions are
-is it possible to solve this broken link problem by adding an extra mount to /etc/fstab ?
-if yes what is the right sentence than, because probably my sentence was wrong
-or is there another way to solve this smaller problem
Looking forward for reaction
