/etc/fstab not mounting /STORAGE partition [SOLVED]
« on: December 19, 2019, 05:53:15 am »
Hi all, how's it goin'  ;D?  I've just installed Peppermint 10 Respin 64-bit onto my HP Elitebook 8470p.  The installation went as sweet as a nut  ;).  After a new installation, I always set up, my separate /STORAGE partition in fstab.  I've done it so many times, I could probably do it with my eyes shut.  Not this time though and it's got me baffled.  Just for the record, here's my inxi -Fx:

I've done all the mounting and changing ownership for the /STORAGE partition.  I've edited /etc/fstab.  The UUIDs from blkid all match:
Code: [Select]
andy@andy-HP-EliteBook-8470p ~ $ sudo blkid
[sudo] password for andy:
/dev/sda5: UUID="dcf5da7e-c1c0-4f95-bd41-5d2ca6e76a08" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="2b9f56df-05"

I'm noticing something I've not seen before.  The devices are being auto-mounted and my /STORAGE partition is showing up as
Code: [Select]
/media/andy/_STORAGE
When I boot up, I get to to the login screen, enter my password.  Peppermint tries to boot, only to come straight back to the login screen.  As I said, it's got me baffled  :-\.

automounted, that's a new one :-\

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -al /mnt
and
Code: [Select]
mount
and can you explain this a little better please:-

Are you saying you can't log in ? .. the reason I'm asking is it seems a bit at odds with you providing output and this statement:-

The installation went as sweet as a nut  ;).  After a new installation, I always set up, my separate /STORAGE partition in fstab

So I'm just after clarification.

[/quote]Sorry I shouldn't have phrased it as auto-mount.  /STORAGE shows up in Nemo in side panel:


As you can see in the drop down info, the path is:
Code: [Select]
/media/andy/_STORAGE
Where that underscore came from is a mystery  :-\.  Yes that's correct, I can't login when using the modified /etc/fstab.  I have to replace it with the default one.  When I do that, Peppermint boots up just fine.  Unfortunately, my /STORAGE partition isn't mounted and the symlinks obviously do nothing.  I hope that's cleared the mud a bit  :).

if you add the fstab entry back (temporarily), then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -a
do you get any error ?

and if not, what's the output now from:
Code: [Select]
ls /mnt/STORAGE

Did the _STORAGE directory disappear from within nemo ?

is this a local drive ? .. and how is it connected ?

Can you explain the 2 '$' symbols in the fstab file you posted in your first post (I've highlighted them red in the quote above) ?

Can you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -a
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls -al /mnt
and
Code: [Select]
mount

[EDIT]

Then can you reboot, and without opening the file manager post the output from
Code: [Select]
mount

[EDIT]

Before we start thinking of a workaround that runs 'mount -a', I wonder what would happen if you used the device node instead of the UUID .. as in
Code: [Select]
/dev/sdb5    /mnt/STORAGE    ext4    defaults    0    2

As 'sudo mount-a' works post-boot, I can only assume that drive isn't finished initialising when fstab is acted upon.

Have you run a fsck on that disk recently ?



There should be a way to work around this though .. eg. running a script that effectively runs 'sudo mount -a' shortly after the desktop is reached.

But it may simply be that a reinstall would do the job .. you know how computers can be weird sometimes.



I wonder what would happen of you made the entry

Running a fsck is a great idea.  I should have thought of that - doh  :-[!  This disk has never been corrected for errors.   It's a 2TB  Seagate FireCuda hybrid drive.  It goes like lighting too.   If that makes no difference, I'll do a reinstall.  Yeah computers can be fickle things for sure.  I'll keep you posted - cheers mate  ;).

After running fsck (if that makes no difference)...

I wonder what would happen of you made the entry:-

I just went for the full reinstall.  Guess what, everything is now working hunky dory  ;D.  It was a gremlin in the system.  I guess we'll call this one a wrap.  Thank you for the assist mate  ;).
