Undo auto-mount partition

Postby mzsade on Sat Jan 02, 2010 7:06 am

Hi, after a fresh install of Mint 8, i had done this:

Code: Select all
sudo mkdir /media/Data

sudo su

echo "/dev/sda2 /media/Data ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2" >> /etc/fstab


Worked very well (thank you Fred), but it slows down my boot. How can i undo this, i would prefer to "sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/Data" when i need to.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You could alt + F2, then
Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
Then just delete the line you created
Code: Select all
/dev/sda2 /media/Data ext3 defaults,noatime 0 2
Don't forget to save it.
