autoMounting problems i get a "stale lock file"

after I messed up my automounting I mounted using comandline, now this appears

alek@DeathStar:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/ALEX mount: mount point /media/ALEX does not exist alek@DeathStar:~$ sudo mkdir /media/ALEX alek@DeathStar:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/ALEX Cannot create link /etc/mtab~ Perhaps there is a stale lock file? alek@DeathStar:~$ sudo umount /media/ALEX/ Cannot create link /etc/mtab~ Perhaps there is a stale lock file?
does anyone know how to fix this? i want to have automounting again:S
All this came as a result of this
