Optical drives don't automount in Slack 10.1


Hi,

I tried editing my /etc/fstab to enable automounting for my CD and DVD drives. The current settings are as follows:

Code:
/dev/sda1        /mnt/usbdisk     vfat        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda10       swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda11       /                ext3        defaults         1   1
/dev/hda9        /home            ext3        defaults         1   2
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdwriter    auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
/dev/hdd         /mnt/dvdwriter   auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
Any ideas as to why the drives aren't automounting would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

thorney

They aren't being mounted automatically because of the "noauto" option. You need to change "noauto" to "auto".
