    Automatic Mounting Storage Partition

    Hi, I have installed lubunut on one of my systems

    now I partitioned the hard drive so about 20gigs is for lubunu, 20 gigs for user folders and the rest I partitioned it as storage space. Now every time I boot this computer I have to press S to skip the boot mounting of storage to actualy be able to boot.

    once then I must also give my system password to mount the disk,

    The computer is just my media player computer and don't care who can read this partition. Eventuly I'd like to be able to FTP files to the stroage drive. but I can figure the ftp stuff on my own.

    Hi helmetjanedoe. Welcome to the forum

    You should be able to create either permanent mount, or mount points available for every user to mount without password, by creating entries on /etc/fstab.

    Take a look at this tutorial, and let us know if you need more help with that.

    Regards.

    Thanks But I dont understand how "sudo mkdir /media/Storage" would make the volume mount while the other volumes mount at boot

    at boot the system says "The DiskDrive for /Storage is not ready yet or present" S to skip or M for manual Recovery

    mount -l

    ... because you're not following the howto at the link posted by papibe. You need to create the mount point, that is only ONE step of a few. You then need to put a line in the fstab, etc .........

    Read the link and follow it from start to finish and then it will make sense rather than dragging one line out at random.

    Of course making a mount point only will make no difference whatsoever. That goes without saying.

    Re: Automatic Mounting Storage Partition

    1st: You are going to have to learn how to run commands in a terminal and post the output to the forum. Anyone who attempts to try to help you depends on that information in a readable format.

    2nd: You should be able to see the problem for yourself:

    The /Storage partition line in fstab references the partition UUID as 36f42.... ( That's a guess since it's really hard to read it ).

    But the blkid command references no such UUID. It would appear the correct UUID is caeb62...... ( That one is even harder to read but it's the one labelled "Stuff" )
