fstab and fedora 17
If I put an entry in fstab should fedora 17 mount a partition for me at boot time?
I see a number of traditional things have changed in recent fedora's.
I put this line in fstab and it is not mounting my partition
/dev/sda3 /media vfat defaults 1 2
do I have an error?
First of all create a folder in /media like 'new' and use it /media/new.
Run the command -
# mount -a
and see if it gives any errors.
you can not mount a partition directly to " / "
SELinux will stop it
that is a fat ? what ? fat32 partition ?
add a folder to /mnt ( mnt IS the preferred place in fedora )
the /media folder is used for AUTO mounting of dvd's , cd's usb-drives,...
then add to fstab
/dev/sda3 /mnt/fat.drive vfat defaults 1 2
that partition should auto mount and be in the left window on Nautilus
listed a a partition by it's size
Thanks for the ideas
My question was motivated by the following
I note that Fedora no longer uses /media instead it uses /run/media
when I manually mount /dev/sda3 /media it works just fine
if i then type mount it re[plies
but it also tried to mount whenever i used terminal
thus i'm not so concerned with the directory where i do it even though the directory i selected is somewhat unconventional
my question is more like "does f17 still use /etc/fstab and do i have the correct syntax"
Took your advice - added TwentyGig under media - changed fstab to mount there and it does.
