I need someone to kick me in the {butt}, please


{sigh} I am a dumb {rectum}
I was having trouble auto-mounting some drives when I did a reboot, even to the point of doing a cron "job"

It really frustrated me to no end.... after a few days of this I realized FINALLY that the mount points were NOT {name}, but were /home/{name}

Aaarrrggghhh!!!

Between kicks received you could let your leg pulled.

That's why I hate automounting. If I mount a drive by hand, I know where it is.

I appreciate kevinbenko sharing the experience...it’s a good reminder of the fact that the damn ‘puters only do what they’re told (or not)....

/etc/fstab is your friend.

A suitable pic attached. But fstab provides root writable only drives. If you go with fstab, you need
  • mount point root:root (e.g. /mnt/drive1)
  • No files except those belonging to root in mount point. (/mnt/drive1/somefile.txt)
  • Subdirs all user:group owned (/mnt/drive1/mydir/)
Then a user can write in the subdirectories.

I have a general purpose backup drive which I habitually mount on /mnt/hd using that system, but I should automate it. If I mount it as luser, the user can create & delete directories. I mean to find where fortune is called and stuff it in local files for one luser, but I go through humours when I feel it shouldn't always be connected.
