Hi,

That's correct, the partition will be mounted every time you reboot. Problem solved? Or do you have more problems related to mountpoints, partitions and so?

Kind regards,

Eric

Very much solved, Your Holiness Linux Guru!

By your lotus fingertips I am saved from the disgrace of MS Windows, and continue to find enlightenment in the ancient mysteries of GNU/Linux.

I bow before thee, and give thanks.

(how many beers do I owe you now?)

And, the other threads have been adjusted.

Oh one more question:
Do I need to keep the lost+found or can I delete it?
What is it for anyway?

Hi Neal,

I've noticed you closing the other threads and also saw you referred at least in one of them to ext4 as filesystem. Did you create an ext4 filesystem on the partition we have been working with? If so you'll best change the value in the fstab file from ext3 to ext4 after unmounting the partition with:
Code:
umount /home/neally/DATA
Mount the partition again after having changed the value, only if you're sure you have used ext4 as filesystem, with the following:
Code:
mount /home/neally/DATA
And you're welcome buddy, but next time don't panic, don't open multiple threads for the same problem and just send me a PM if you're in trouble or doubt.

Kind regards,

Eric

Neal,

My good friend Josh has already provided the answer . He's good with Linux (pretty damn good I might add), but very poor with words, hence his short posts (ROFLMAO).

Kind regards,

Eric

Awe thanks buddy! :hugs:

No homo involved, I swear! Haha... But thanks, and yes, you are absolutely correct about that. I'm horrible at explaining things...

And to make this post a bit longer, I need to vent about my car for a quick second... So a three dollar part broke, and now I can't drive my car. Oil drain plug... That's what it's called. The washer too....

Ok, back on topic. I actually knew somewhat it was for, but never messed with it, let-a-lone had to deal with it. I just might purposely break something on my hardware firewall just so I can say that I have used it....

No concern for the file system. I consciously changed it and maintained correct reference to it. No TOO sure why I changed from ext4 to ext3, but I have a slight feeling that ext3 MIGHT access file a tiny bit faster, and/or consumes a bit less HDD space.

In any case, I now ext3 is older, and therefore, in the Linux world, it should be more stable.

I need to be corrected on all this.

Thanks everyone, even on the other threads!

PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE!

This is a good example of problems users get into when rushing. In post # 10, Neal had posted the output of the mount command which showed sda4 as well as sda5 already had mount point in the /media directory: /media/disk, /media/disk-1. Neal, if you had read through my post #14, I explained that you would need to make some changes for your specific entry in fstab. So, read instructions carefully and if you don't understand, stop and ask as suggested above.

Glad you got it working, good help from EricTRA, I enjoyed reading the thread.

Thanks Yancek!
Advice well taken.

ps, even as Linux-dumb as I am, I think I have come a long way since my first install attempts. Just ask EricTRA about the voodoo demon witches that lived in my old She-Beast computer!

Your Welcome.

I'm sure the entire process with EricTRA was a good learning experience and will be helpful for others.

After making a mess of various things, when I do something new like installing a new OS, a LAMP server or whatever I take copious notes and then put them in a file for later use if necessary. Installing a new OS, I usually take screenshots of each step with my notes and then put it all in an html page(s) which makes easier reading later.
