I imagine this is a basic gotcha ... but I can't see it. I have a system with 2(physical) harddrives.
The boot system (/dev/sda) was running 10.04 & the second drive (/dev/sdb) was just a mounted filesystem.
I did a clean load of Ubuntu 12.04 overwriting /dev/sda (not an upgrade) & now cannot mount the second drive. so I do not know what to enter it into the fstab ... I had expected to use:
/dev/sdb /tera ext4 defaults 0 2
But even manual mounting fails (I also have tried various "-t" options on the off chance!)
sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdb1 /tera
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
Output from disk queries indicate that it is a Linux LVM & a healthy disk still.
sudo lshw -C disk

LVM doesn't appear to be an option for mount or fstab.
