I wanted to auto-mount my ntfs drives on boot time, so I went through this article to do so using pysdm.
I followed this article auto-mount-your-ntfs-partition-in-ubuntu.
But when I tried to uncheck the box Mount file system in read only mode, It didn't work. It was checked again, on its own. The drives were also mounted not by the user names, but by the names sda3, sda5 etc.
In the option for the specifying the name for the ntfs drives, i specified my own names, the names by which the drives were usually mounted.
I didn't try to uninstall the package, as I thought that might be harmful and could be fatal.
Now, when I restarted my Ubuntu, it just doesn't restart.
It stays in an infinite loop, i guess and even the login screen doesn't showup.
Please help me, and if something is not clear in the question, let me know. Suggest any possible way, I can get my Ubuntu (10.04) back and running, with my packages as they were configured.
EDITED: I ran Ubuntu in the recovery mode, and it showed the following output on the console twice and then went off to the same ubuntu logo as earlier on.
fcsk from util-linux-ng 2.17.2 /dev/sda8: clean, 635759/1152816 files, 2954346/4605952 blocks mount: unknown filesystem type 'Spoon' mountall: mount /media/Silver terminated with status 32 mountall: Filesystem could not be mounted: /media/Silver init: ureadahead-other main process (893) terminated with status 4 init: ureadahead-other main process (906) terminated with status 4 init: ureadahead-other main process (917) terminated with status 4
The error that I can see is that I incidently typed the mount location of a drive to /sda/Silver Spoon and that is causing trouble.
