So my laptop currently dual boots Windows 7 and Ubuntu (trusty). I also had SteamOS, but I deleted the partitions for that and made a new one, which I plan to use as a steam library folder for my Ubuntu steam. The problem is, the partition won't mount through fstab. (And for as long as I can remember, neither can the swap partition, but my computer still works) Whenever I boot now, it says it can't mount a UUID, which is my swap, then it says it can't mount the device for /steamgames because it doesn't exist or isn't ready (I did make a /steamgames folder), and I don't know what that means. If I run
sudo mount /dev/sda7 /steamgames in terminal it mounts. This is my 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=77d5e8aa-9546-4c1e-993f-b646ffd7f682 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sda6 during installation UUID=1a7e9662-5315-4337-92d0-b95364dfd26e none swap sw 0 0 UUID=886786d4-b7fb-43c1-9911-a9bdaac796bf /steamgames ext4 defaults 0 2
What should I do to get everything to mount properly?
