Re: how to set partition to mount on startup
Ubuntu handles mounting drives with a file called "fstab", which is short for file system table i'd imagine.
In order to open it with appropriate root editing privledges, type the following into terminal:
input password and you should see the file. Save a backup copy as fstab.bak before altering it.
gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
your going to add a new line at the bottom of fstab telling your comp to mount the seperate ext4 partition. It will look something like this:
The only thing you'll need to change is /dev/sda2, to match the identifier of your parition. You can also change the YourMountPoint to where ever you want the parition mounted. Next time you reboot, it should auto-mount.
/dev/sda2 /YourMountPoint ext4 defaults 0 0
