I just installed Lubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal" on my Acer Aspire One D257, creating the partitions:
$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda5 15G 2.1G 12G 15% / ... /dev/sda1 1008M 62M 896M 7% /boot /dev/sda6 15G 180M 14G 2% /home /dev/sda4 195G 188M 185G 1% /media/data
(or see partitions.png:)
(I know boot partitions were useful for old bios, but now they are also useful for encryption, LVM... (though differerent from a dedicated GRUB partition !))
I renamed the "data" partition (=
sda4) flag/name (using utility Disks).
I have been trying for hours now to find a solution to:
How to get my data partition (not my home partition!) to auto-mount at boot time somewhere (if possible in /media/data) with me (user = christophe) as owner and the permissions as rwxrwxr-x (=user:rwx, group:rwx, other:r-x)?
My problems are that every time I reboot:
/media/datais back under root ownership
/media/datais back under rwxr-xr-x permissions
/media/datacontent is back as just lost+found (!!!)
- frequently, when trying options in
/etc/fstab, I had "an error occurred while mounting /media/data" at boot time.
I tried mostly to edit my
/etc/fstabfile. Now it is:
$ cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=8325697c-2c27-49dd-99f8-2a1a3e1467be / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=3ba24cc6-e38b-48d9-b526-68358783d980 /boot ext4 defaults 0 2 # /home was on /dev/sda6 during installation UUID=1ef16ece-0965-4611-a2e5-dd687f4ee5ff /home ext4 defaults 0 2 # /media/data was on /dev/sda4 during installation # UUID=0598f54b-dcf8-4508-97de-94d9f2c5e2a8 /media/data ext4 defaults 0 2 UUID=0598f54b-dcf8-4508-97de-94d9f2c5e2a8 /media/data ext4 rw,suid,dev,exec,auto,user,async,errors=remount-ro,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 2 # swap was on /dev/sda2 during installation UUID=04f73159-479d-4a4b-a78c-37a406909225 none swap sw 0 0
In a way, I'd like my data partition to automount like my home partition.
I do not want a solution where I would have to chmod or chown or do something every time I (re)boot!
