I have spent about 4 days searching the 9000
fstab posts, none of which answer my question. Recently I needed to reinstall Ubuntu 16.04 LTS because reasons. Anyway, this time around, I seem unable to mount my fixed hard drives to my file system.
If I type
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /home/spooky/Songs
it works fine. That's great, wonderful, except whenever I reboot, I have to type that in manually. If I put that command into
/etc/rc.local nothing happens at boot up (well, that's not true, it prevents me from a manual mount until I remove it again and reboot).
Before the clean install, I had it in
fstab, but for some reason that isn't working any more.
The result of
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="Music" UUID="dc50cbf0-e046-4778-ba1a-1b85d65a1ea0" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="d7e56509-01" /dev/sdc2: LABEL="Movies" UUID="71f74e32-a760-463b-bec0-c06991ebb52f" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="d56e36e4-02"
fstab, I added the lines to the EOF (the rest of which has remained unchanged since install):
UUID=dc50cbf0-e046-4778-ba1a-1b85d65a1ea0 /home/spooky/Music ext4 defaults 0 2 UUID=71f74e32-a760-463b-bec0-c06991ebb52f /home/spooky/Videos ext4 defaults 0 2
and as a prize, I am forced into the debug mode thingy and have to remove them to be able to reboot.
What am I doing wrong? how can I fix it without rebooting every 4 minutes for a continuous 4 hours after working through every website and page I can find that's vaguely related to my problem?
I'm not an idiot (when it comes to Linux), but this is stumping me big time so I'm assuming I'm missing something simple, especially as it works perfectly fine when I do it manually, just no automated method works.
