I want to mount a JFS formatted drive on boot to contain my videos.

I have tryed fstab options

/dev/sda1 /home/user/mythtvvid jfs rw,auto,user,fmask=0111,dmask=0000 0 0

/dev/sda1 /home/user/mythtvvid jfs rw,auto,user,fmask=0111,dmask=0000 0 2

/dev/sda1 /home/user/mythtvvid jfs rw,auto,user,error=remount-ro 0 2

all of witch have failed

I could mount -t it after every reboot but would prefer to have it done automatically. What am I doing wrong?

Hi,

Maybe try

/dev/sda1 /home/user/mythtvvid jfs rw,users,noauto,noatime 0 0

When that works try adding the extra options no after another, I've seen that if you have an error in your fstab linux doesn't mount the drive but doesn't bring any errors.

Thx for the advice. I'm still playing around trying to find something that works.

Hi,

If your jfs partition is not your boot partition, you could just add a mount -t to your /etc/rc.local file.
