I have an external hard drive which contains two partitions - one is ext3 and one is FAT32. Each partition mounts automatically at boot and I am able to read/write to the partitions without any special effort. However, I am unable to unmount the partitions normally. I can only unmount them with sudo umount.
I have some understanding of fstab, but obviously not enough. Below are my entries for the partitions:
I can't seem to understand what is causing the problem. Could it be that I am not using UUIDs, did I do something wrong in the options section, or is it something else entirely?
/dev/sdb1 /media/external_main ext3 auto,user,rw,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sdb2 /media/external_fat32 vfat rw,user,fmask=0133,dmask=0022,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
Thanks in advance!
