Hi, I'm a newbie & my linux knowledge so far is limited so excuse the simplicity but I pose this question:
I have partitioned & mounted a drive as follows
[root@fs02 /]# mount /dev/cciss/c1d0p3 /HP/Backups
this worked fine, however I have to mount this drive everytime i reboot the machine.
So, I have learnt that the fstab has to be changed in order to permanently mount a disk - I opend the fstab and it tells me that fstab is edited with fstab-sync. So I read the man pages for fstab-sync but could not understand how to run this fstab-sync with the Daemon that the Man pages kept telling me about.
I tried to open the fstab-sync here:
this contained an executable "50-fstab-sync.hal" Which doesnt respond when I try and run/open this. So I checked its link which was linked to:
Which is there but it also non-responsive when i try to run the executable!
What is this HAL daemon, & how to I know if it exists on my machine?? What am I doing wrong?
P.S - I am asking here because I cant find any relevant information in ANY thread on ANY site! please help!!
