Fedora :: Automount Using Fstab ?

Sep 2, 2009

I remember automounting my windows drive (I dualboot windows and fedora) using /etc/fstab.

Now I can't find what to add to the file in order to mount my drive.

The drive is /dev/sda2 and I would like to mount it at /mount/windows, it's an NTFS drive.

I have been looking around the forums and reading the manuals but can't figure it out

Ubuntu Networking :: Automount In Fstab ?

Mar 30, 2010

I run ubuntu 9.10, and my wife runs winxp. I am trying to setup an automount of her storage (D) drive in my fstab. here is the line in fstab:

The share mounts with no errors, but when i go into palces and view the share, it is blank, totally empty. I can create and delete documents here, but the next time I open the share, i cant see anything. If i connect to the share using places>connect to server, everything is fine. If i connect using places, network, and browse to her machine, it works just fine.

Today i did a fresh install of karmic, installed smbfs, added the above line to fstab, same issue. I have searced and searched but I haven't found a problem exactly like this. This setup has been working fine until sometime recently. I cant be sure exactly when it stopped working, or why. The reason I need it to automount is I have several applications that point to that drive. It is worth noting i have tried several variations on the line in fstab, all with the same results.

General :: Access Fstab To Automount In Kubuntu?

Jul 11, 2010

Other users can't access my second SATA HDD until I have logged in and clicked on it (or saved or opened a file, etc) and it asks for a password. Once I enter a password then I can access it and so can other users.

I figure I need to auto mount the drive.

I can't seem to view the fstab. In a terminal it says 'permission denied'. I've tried changing to root but get 'Authentication failed'

P.S. I was sure under Kubuntu 7 or 9 you could right click on the icon and select 'automount'. Or was it MEPIS...?

Ubuntu :: Fstab Automount Pointed At Lucid Box Not Working?

May 10, 2010

I'm probably missing something noobishly obvious here. I recently did a fresh Lucid install on my main desktop box, which had previously been running Karmic. With Lucid I can no longer use fstab in my laptops to automatically mount the desktop's shared media drive. Using the mount command works fine. One laptop is running Karmic, the other is running Hardy.This is the line in fstab on both laptops:

// /media/multimedia cifs username=x,password=y 0 0
This is unchanged since the desktop was running Karmic, where auto-mounting from the lappys worked just

CentOS 5 :: Automount Cifs Filesystem Using The Fstab File

Aug 3, 2010

I have been running a server for 3-4 years now, and my shares have been mounting just fine. Well, the network admin looked at a backup and seen that the last date backed up was june. I got to looking around and seen that the share is not mounting. I can mount it with sudo mount -a, which tells me my syntax is correct. I get an error about IPv4 socket not opened and it is aborting the operation when I run dmesg | tail, since I can use the above command to mount later, it sounds to me like it is trying to mount before the network connection is ready.

I have done some looking over some init scripts and found that in the /etc/rc.d/init.r/netfs script it has a line that states that it is checking to see if the network is up before it starts to mount the filesystems and the such. This is set to no, my question is, can I change this option to yes and get my desired results, waiting for the network to be up before it mounts the filesystems.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Automount Cifs Network Drives In Fstab?

May 24, 2011

I just made a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4-Tumbleweed and have the latest updates. However fstab lines I've used in the past are not working.

Here's an example of two:
//IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs credentials=/home/user/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users 0 0
//IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs guest,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users

I can execute a command

sudo mount /home/user/mount and it works, but I'm wanting all my fstab lines to automount at boot as on other machines.

Ubuntu :: Setup Two External Hard Drives To Automount In Fstab

Sep 10, 2010

I have set up two external hard drives to automount in fstab with the following lines:

/dev/sdb1 /media/DownstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/UpstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0

And right after I restart, all users have permission to read and write, and everything is fine. However, I have an automated backup utility (BackinTime) installed to back up particular (mounted network) directories every night, but whenever I check up on it the next day, I get the error "Unable to mount ..... Authorization required". (These network directories are mounted into the local filesystem in fstab as well.) Oddly enough, if I run BackinTime by hand as the users, it works fine. I'm running 10.04 LTS.

Hardware :: Changes To Fstab (UUID's) / Revert Fstab's Listings Back To The Old /dev/hd Settings?

Jan 15, 2010

I've had two hd's in my box forever. for more space and backup reasons. Well I have started running the Debian Squeeze distro since December. I've had many issues, some are still unresolved. but now I'm running into major headaches with the fstab. Specifically dealing with/wondering why UUID's are used instead of the old /dev/hd? I was a little annoyed when I tried Kubuntu to find /dev/sd? used instead of /dev/hd? but that was workable. But the UUID's are a nightmare. Here's my problem.

My main box is finally giving up the ghost. The mobo is dying. So in order to do some tests I took my hd bundle (my two hard drives with their cables) physically out of the box and temp installed them in a test box. I wanted to do some benchmark and other tests. I got all kinds of errors. I found that the system wasn't recognizing the UUID's listed in fstab. My concern is when the new mobo gets here next week I won't simply be able to plug the hd's in like I always have been and just let Linux reconfigure itself (Debian used to be good about this). I really don't want to have to clean reinstall if it's not needed.

So for this I have two questions. WHY developers decided to drop using /dev/hd? or even /dev/sd? ?

And is it possible to revert fstab's listings back to the old /dev/hd? settings. In debian fstab had lines commented out showing how each partition was listed in it's /dev/hd? status during install.

I'm getting really sick of all these archane changes in ALL aspects of linux that don't seem to have any good explaination or need.

Ubuntu :: Rename The Fstab-BAK To Fstab?

Jan 19, 2010

I've apparently changed my fstab file and now my boot drive fails to mount. The original file is still there "fstab.BAK". How do I rename the current fstab to another name and rename the fstab.BAK to fstab? Since this is read only in the /etc directory I have not been able to make this happen from a command prompt.

Fedora :: How To Automount Another Partition

Sep 4, 2010

On my computer for the last couple of years I have been running Ubuntu and Windows XP in a dual boot system. Due to some unsolvable problems in Ubuntu, I decided to try out Fedora. I created a third partition on my computer and into this partition I installed Fedora. Now when I boot my computer I can either run Fedora or Windows XP. Eventually, I plan to get rid of Ubuntu completely. But for now the Ubuntu partition is still on my hard disk; I can't boot up with Ubuntu anymore, and that's OK. I don't need to run Ubuntu, but I would like to be able to access the Ubuntu partition, since there are files there that I want to keep.

At least I want to be able to read and write to the files in Ubuntu. How can I automatically mount the Ubuntu partition so that I can work with its files from Fedora?

I'm pretty sure that to get the Ubuntu partition to mount, I need to enter some lines into the etc/fstab file. Does anyone know what I should enter into Fedora's etc/fstab file so that the Ubuntu partition will be mounted?

In my Ubuntu installation the partition is named DiskF, it is partitioned in the ext3 file system. In Fedora when I look at /media/DiskF, it is empty.

When I run [code] blkid in a terminal here is the output:

What are the commands that I need to put in /etc/fstab so that when I boot my computer in Fedora DiskF will be mounted?

Fedora Hardware :: Automount In KDE ?

Nov 12, 2010

I configured "removable devices" in system settings as follows:

checked "Enable automatic mounting of removable media"


checked "Automatically mount removable media when attached"

Now following reason you would expect when you put a CD/DVD in the CD/DVD player it would be automatically mounted in directory /media/ yes?

But no - you first HAVE to open the CD or DVD with a program (like a file manager) before the directory and its content appears in directory /media/. This is not expected and very annoying.

Why does the configuration screen not work as expected. Are all settings just being ignored or something? If so - then why are those settings there in the first place? Or did I simply done something wrong?

I just want a CD or DVD been automatically mounted when I put it in the player, so I can access it without first having to open it in a separate program.

Fedora :: Preventing Automount Of A Specific HD?

Oct 31, 2009

just a quick question: I have an external HD with 2 partitions, one ext3 and one FAT32.When I plug in the HD both partitions get automatically mounted, but as I only use I use the FAT32 partition to transfer data from/to Windows machines (which does not happen so often) I would like only the ext3 partition to be mounted automatically.

Fedora :: Automount Fails For Mo-drive?

Mar 2, 2010

I think), and when I inserted a mo-disk in the drive, it automatically mounted and turned up as /media/disk. I then did an update (all) an now I am on core 2.6.31-12. The mo-disk will not automount any longer. Inserting a USB stick or a DVD still works fine, but I have to manually mount the mo. I have a feeling that it might be security related, but I am not sure.

lshal shows the following when I insert the disk:
10:08:38.309: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.removable.media_available = true
10:08:38.325: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.partitioning_scheme = 'mbr'

Fedora :: Gnome's Automount And Getting A Path?

May 2, 2010

I enjoy the way Gnome automounts devices, such as cameras, thumb drives, and my iphone but it doesn't seem to mount the device in a conventional way that can be accessed by a path in a command prompt.Automounted devices can be configured to Do 'X' every time it is connected (you knew that) which includes specifying a command. I want to rsync the contents of the picture folder every time I drop it in the cradle, but retain the automount that gnome uses.The path used in Nautilus is : gphoto2://[usb:001,008]/DCIM/100APPLEBut that doesn't seem to be useful to me, at least as far as I can see.

Fedora :: Way To Automount A NTFS Partition On 13 ?

Jun 15, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 (the KDE spin). It detects correctly my other NTFS partitions and will mount them perfectly if I click on it using Dolphin.

I would like to mount one of them automatically after booting (or logging in, doesn't matter). My first idea - and supported by a coulple of Google searches and previous threads - was to put them on on /etc/fstab.

But to my complete surprise they aren't there. Where does Dolphin (or KDE) keeps information about partitions? How to set them to automount? Also, fstab refers to my linux partitions as UUIDs not the device names - how does this work?

What should I do to set a NTFS partition to automount on Fedora 13?

I'm using Fedora 12, beta RC 2 in case that makes a difference.

Fedora :: USB Automount On GNOME - Ext3 Drive

Nov 26, 2009

I have two USB drives, one with ext3, and the other w/vfat. On my new Fedora 12 installation, GNOME properly automounts the vfat drive on insertion. However, it applies a wrong command to mount the ext3 one. The end result is that the ext3 drive appears in /etc/mtab but, unlike vfat, is inaccessible to non-power user.

The mtab is: /dev/sdb1 /media/918fb656-8efc-43b5-bdfd-0bd8004deeba ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/49C6-1901 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=500,gid=500,sho rtname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0

Somehow GNOME misses the uid=500,gid=500,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1, flush portion of the mount command when mounting the ext3 drive.

Fedora Hardware :: When A Cd Is Inserted It Doesn't Automount CD Either

May 18, 2010

It seems as though k3b will only recognise my burners when the system first boots for about 5 minutes. Once time is up k3b will not see my burners.. I tried burning a disk using k3b soon as I booted and it lost the drives mid burn.

The drives are ide and I've read about the drivers for cdrdao possibly not being correct but when I check to see if cdrdao sees the drives using command line it does give me both drives. So I assume that is working properly. When a cd is inserted it doesn't automount the cd either. Am I having issues with HAL? or is k3b just that flaky? ISB thumb drives mount fine..I have checked the fstab and there is no mention of cdrom mount points. IS this normal with the newer versions? Is this possibly my issue.. I was under the impression that with HAL the mount points are for ease of use in the fstab.. (not that you could mount a blank cd anyway...)

Fedora :: Can't Boot - Need To Edit Fstab

Oct 2, 2009

I really need some help here, this is driving me mad. I edited my fstab file to boot a partition on start up, only instead of typing sda7 I typed sda1 by mistake and now can't boot.
The problem that is driving me mad is I cannot save changes to fstab from a live cd because I do not have root permissions.
I am relatively new to Linux and have no idea how to use the fedora install disk or the commands to use or if it will let me save changes to the file.
I cannot believe something so easy to fix does not appear to be possible because i can't save changes to the fstab on my fedora install.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cant Boot After Changing /etc/fstab?

Oct 2, 2010

I've edited /etc/fstab to auto-mount two partitions on a new disk drive that have been formatted as ext3, by appending the following two lines:

/dev/sdb1 /bak1 ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/sdb2 /bak2 ext3 defaults 1 1

On reboot, the system complains there is some problem (I can't advise what the problem is, because the display scrolls up too fast to read!), and I'm left with a root command prompt.

Its a /etc/fstab problem, presumably. I've used vi to edit /etc/fstab to remove the two lines mentioned above, but on quit and save, I'm told I have a read-only file system!

1. How can I mount a read-write file system so I can edit /etc/fstab?

2. What's wrong with my two new entries in /etc/fstab? After formatting /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdb2, I checked the they were mountable with # mount /dev/sdbn /bakn (n = 1, 2) before editing fstab.

Fedora Hardware :: XFCE Doesn't Automount IPhones?

Mar 5, 2010

With the GNOME desktop environment, when I plug in my iPhone, Nautilus automatically mounts it and I can browse and download my photos from it, as though the iPhone were a digital camera. Also the F-Spot auto-run dialog pops up asking if I want to import photos from the iPhone.In XFCE though, plugging in the iPhone doesn't do anything at all, except begin charging the phone. No auto-mounting is done in XFCE, no auto-run dialogs, nothing.

What is different here? Is it possible to get XFCE to auto-mount them? I thought XFCE uses GVFS like GNOME does? This is Fedora 12, by the way, with XFCE 4.6.To be sure it isn't just that XFCE doesn't mount digital camera type devices, I tested it with an actual digital camera that plugs in via USB. Once I connect it to the computer, it auto-mounts, I get a run dialog to import photos and I can browse the photos in Thunar just like I could with Nautilus.So it seems as though the iPhone sort of looks like a digital camera enough that GNOME mounts it as one, but it's just different enough that XFCE doesn't mount it at all.---------- Post added at 01:25 PM CST ---------- Previous post was at 12:03 PM CST ----------Apparently if I run F-Spot manually and go to import photos, it lets me select "Apple iPhone" or something from a source menu and then can import the photos that wa

What do I have to change/edit/configure to make Fedora 15 behave like this?
