I have Ubuntu 11.04 & Windows 7 installed on the same disc, with all of my data on the NTFS partition so that I can get at it from both OSs. Is set up the following line in fstab to mount the windows partition on boot since if I log in without it mounting all of my links to the directories where my stuff is stored will break and Clementine will have a hissy fit 'cause it can't find my music.
Every time I restart during the boot process I get an error stating that it could not mount the windows partition and giving me the option of dropping into a root terminal to do this manually, which I can do. Then it works fine for that session. I just don't want to have to drop into a terminal every boot just to enter 'mount /dev/sda2 /media/windows'
The line I added to fstab was:
I'm assuming for some reason it doesn't like the options there, which is why it's failing. What've I done wrong?
/dev/sda2 /media/windows NTFS rw,suid,dev,exec,auto,user,sync 0 0
P.S. is there a more elegant way to achieve this? Surely ubuntu should've moved on to having a system setting to "automatically mount this drive" by now? I would have assumed just being able to right click on the drive and instead of selecting "mount" select "always mount this drive".
