how to automount on reboot

how to automount on reboot

eloftyelofty Member

I recently picked up one of the 2tb offerings on let from zxhost, I requested it with ubuntu which i'm mostly used to but i've never had any dealings with having to mount a second drive (sdb) I've tried a couple of line entries into fstab however everytime i seem to kill the boot sequence having to go onto the console to skip the mounting process in order for the box to go online.

anyone know the best way to mount the /dev/sdb drive?




  • scrap that, found something online :)

  • fstab magic or Linux basics

    Screw you guys. I'm going home.

    You've posted 22 minutes too early and wouldn't even be kind enough to share the solution with someone who might be later searching for it ?
