Hello. Back in the good old days when I used Lenny, I was able to mount my usb stick, mount my digital camera, and sync my palm pilot, at the same time. After upgrading to Squeeze, this now seems like an impossible dream.
My fstab file used to look like this:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 vfat,msdos rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/usb vfat noauto,user 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/usb2 vfat noauto,user 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/usb3 vfat noauto,user 0 0
Now, it has all these messy unreadable entries like "UUID=14c375f6-91a3-45cd-b12a-d06b507c9dfe" in it. What does this mean?
I use Fluxbox, on an old Dell OptiPlex GX1. Whenever I try to mount and read the files on my digital camera, I am told I have "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock".
There's some strange entry in the current (and now incomprehensible) fstab that reads:
UUID=A456-E995 /media/usb vfat noauto,user 0 0
I think this might be for my usb stick, which sometimes I can mount and read. But, when I try to read images from my digital camera, via plugging it in and mounting /media/usb, it tells me that "mount: special device UUID=A456-E995 does not exist".
How I yearn for the good old days of Lenny. But, I digress. Can someone tell me how to fix my fstab to get it so I can once again mount my usb devices (specifically the camera)?
