Re: Automatic display of all hard drives on Desktop...

Thank you AndyMH for spotting the error I missed in fstab. I subsequently amended it but still couldn't boot the computer into LMDE-3. Just got the same dmraid45 module error.
In desperation, I did a complete reinstall. See the following post.
