I am at a loss as to what is going wrong here.
I have my /home on a seperate partition located on a sata disk /dev/sda1.
This configuration has been in my computer, running slackware, for years. Now all of a sudden the /home directory is not mounting at boot time. I a getting errors of:
mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist
But above that it is recognised fine:
SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back
To add even more mystery to this, as soon as I bring up the terminal, I can mount the disk without issue.
Obviously I could simply write a quick script to check /home was mounted, and if not, then mount it manually, but this is nothing more than a nasty hack. I really want to know why the system is not seeing /dev/sda1 when /etc/fstab is processed when it clearly exists!
