When in Ubuntu Linux boot process are filesystems (from /etc/fstab) mounted?
I defined the following shared-folders on my Ubuntu VirtualBox VM.
openstack@ubuntu:~$ grep vboxsf /etc/fstab tmp /home/openstack/shared/tmp vboxsf defaults 0 0 images /home/openstack/shared/images vboxsf defaults 0 0 openstack@ubuntu:~$
Mounting them from the shell is no problem.
