I set up a dual boot setup on my netbook to try Ubuntu. Since I liked it, I carved out an additional partition to use with Ubuntu.
I am able to successfully mount this partion by adding this command to Startup Applications
/usr/bin/udisks --mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/c1e4fe5a-df6b-4910-811d-a6f5d76d59c2
However, in the interest of learning, I tried to mount this partition through fstab instead, since it seemed that this was the more normal way. Here are all the lines from fstab that are not comments. I added the last line.
UUID=4c24d79e-fd82-45a7-91fc-787aff8ec4e1 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=9e15e92b-411d-443e-a3d4-584748010ba5 none swap sw 0 0
UUID=c1e4fe5a-df6b-4910-811d-a6f5d76d59c2 /media/mountpoint auto auto,users,uid=1000,gid=100,dmask=027,fmask=137 0 2
Before saving the fstab, I disabled my Startup Application command, rebooted, and confirmed that the new partition was not mounted. I then saved fstab and did the
sudo mount -a
but I got this error
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda3,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I'd appreciate any advice on what I did wrong with my fstab update.
