I have a secondary 1TB disk. On that disk I have 3 partitions with the ext4 filesystem (600gb, 300gb and 100gb).
I wanted to mount the partitions into some folders inside the home directory.
So I added this to
UUID=bc7599e9-8823-4daf-b0e5-d2ba7dab033d /home/alsar/Pictures ext4 defaults 0 2 UUID=45c34cc6-77ec-44c2-aaa9-514aff27d374 /home/alsar/Other ext4 defaults 0 2 UUID=3753f8be-83b1-42de-824d-b80b58f22945 /home/alsar/Videos ext4 defaults 0 2
When I start the system it says that the partitions are mounted at the specified mount points. But they are not, because the folders are empty.
When I run
df -h it says that all three partitions have the size 69GB which actually is the size of the
/dev/sda4 partition that is mounted into the home folder.
/dev/sda4 69G 42G 24G 65% /home /dev/sdb1 69G 42G 24G 65% /home/alsar/Videos /dev/sdb2 69G 42G 24G 65% /home/alsar/Pictures /dev/sdb3 69G 42G 24G 65% /home/alsar/Other
If I for instance run
sudo umount /dev/sdb3 it says
umount: /home/ales/Other: not mounted. If I run
mount -a after that the
/dev/sdb3 partition gets actually mounted.
I tried another disk, but the problem is the same.
I run Ubuntu 13.10. Any help would be appreciated.
It seams to be the problem only when the mount points are inside the home folder (which is the mount point of
/dev/sda4. Any other location works fine.
