I recently installed Ubuntu 15.10.
Previously, I had Ubuntu 15.04. In 15.04, I had this entry in my fstab file to mount an external hard drive that is attached to my wireless router:
//rt-ac87r-8b48/My_Book /media/rt-ac87r-8b48 cifs user,guest,uid=1000,gid=users,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,_netdev,noperm 0 0
In 15.04, this worked great - at boot, the drive mounted.
In 15.10, with the exact same fstab file, I get no error messages, but this drive does NOT mount at boot. I have to manually mount it (which works fine).
I'm at a loss as to what to look at next to figure out why this will not work. I have the cifs tools installed in 15.10 (as they were in 15.04).
