im new on linux mint and sofar everythings been fine - but i wanted my harddrives and partitions to automount and changed them with mountmanager and after that i couldnt boot anymore. i get to the linux mint logo and then it stops. through repair mode or what its called i could see it stops becouse it cant mount all devices. how can i change that? i have a live cd and would like an answer i can understand
can i somehow reset fstab? without too much knowledge of linux?
If everything went okay, you should have a backup file of your original fstab file. Start the live-cd and mount your internal disc and open it with the filemanager. Go to this directory: /etc/ and delete the fstab file. Then rename your backed up fstab file.
Your original fstab file is simply called: fstab
The backed up file is called fstab.backup
. Just by removing the extension .backup
and you have your original fstab file back. Reboot and see what happens then.
If you can log into linux, open a terminal and type the following command:
- Code: Select all
and place the output here. Also tell us then which drives you want to automount.
