Unmounted volume in Elyssa but not in Darnya

Postby pjhartt on Fri Aug 08, 2008 6:24 pm

I have just updated to mint Elyssa and was using Darnya.

In Darnya my windows volume was always mounted at startup. In Elyssa I always have to mount it manually.

How can I get this to mount automatically at startup?

Regards
Peter

This was a drawback in Elyssa - only partitions used by the system gets automounted
This means you have to mess with fstab
Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/fstab

add a line like
Code: Select all
/dev/sda1       /media/sda1     ntfs    defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0       1

Now
Code: Select all
sudo mkdir  /media/sda1

Change sda1 to whatever you have
Now you can mount it
Code: Select all
sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1  /media/sda1   

Again change sda1 to whatever you have
