I have an external hard drive that I use for data and media storage, and I'm attempting to get it to mount automatically. My computer very plainly doesn't like what I've done so far, though!
Based on this, having mounted the drive:
/dev/sdf1 on /media/Neko.Storage type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096) [Neko.Storage]
I added this to /etc/fstab:
/dev/sdf1 /media/Neko.Storage fuseblk defaults 1 2
I restarted, and fsck threw a bit of a fit at me and put me in recovery mode - commenting out that line fixed the problem, and now I'm back to square one.
Evidently, I've done something wrong
My first assumption based on the error messages is that fsck doesn't recognise the 'fuseblk' entry. I think
the filesystem is ntfs (which presumably is what would replace fuseblk), but I'm not certain - is there any way to check this?
That said, is there any value in fscking the drive, or would that '2' be better set to '0'?
Finally, are there any steps I need to take beyond the /etc/fstab configuration?
Many thanks in advance!
