    [SOLVED] problem with music

    Ok it isn't really a problem. Here is what I want to do.

    I either need to add my additional hdd (IDE) to the fstab (I have no idea how) to get it to automount. OR I need to copy my mp3 folder to my filesystem. I would just copy the folder to my home directory but I setup my system using 3 partitions. (a /root,/home, and a swap). The home directory only has 5GB free. The mp3 folder is 14GB.

    I am forgetting to mount my hdd and when I startup Amarok it goes retarted on me and then I have to "find" all my mp3 files again.

    If you have any suggestions other than what I have above then I would be glad to read them. I am still learning Linux commands etc and am using Ubuntu 8.04 as a primary OS now. Thanks.

    To automount your other drive, you can insert this line of text on your /etc/fstab file (at the bottom-most of the file).

    /dev/sda2 /media/sda2 ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 1

    just replace the sda2 with the drive that corresponds to your own drive.

    sudo gedit /etc/fstab
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    No good. It won't automount.

    Post your fstab, so we know what to automount:

    sudo fstab -l


    (that's small L)

    Try this:

    sudo mkdir /media/windrive

    sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
    sudo gedit /etc/fstab

    and paste this line of the very end of fstab file

    /dev/sdb1 /media/windrive ntfs defaults,umask=007,gid=46 0 1

    then restart

    Thank you mt friend. It works like a charm. I thought it didn't work at first because it did not have a icon on the desktop. It did work though and I imported my mp3 folder once again and then restarted to see if it stuck. It did indeed. Thanks again for your time.
