Thanks for the tip, but I couldn't find a solution there. I'm still pretty much a CL newbie, so some of that was confusing. I get that I might have to edit the /etc/fstab file, but I don't know where. The only possible line is the one pertaining to /proc. I read some about /proc and it led me to look into /etc/init.d and I'm reluctant to go messing around with code when I don't know what I'm doing.
Here's my etc/fstab file. (I added the noatime to minimize writes to the flash drive.)
- Code: Select all
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
UUID=67cf9880-0e7b-4b19-a201-903505b03008 / ext2 defaults,noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=2d2e989a-acef-41d2-a596-fdc26a4d7b6f /home ext2 defaults,noatime 0 2
UUID=a1ba9f9b-2eea-4386-8186-d73a15892c16 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0
I'd like to add a "noauto" option to my hard drive, but I'm not sure what Mint calls it when it's booting from the USB drive (sda).
