View Full Version : is this sensible for fstab workaround?

i have just installed a second hard disk which i what auto mounted on boot up

as su, i edited the fstab file where the new hard disk was and set it as auto

i rebooted to check it was all ok but the disk did not mount

i looked at the fstab again to find that the second hard disk had gone back to noauto

why is this

and as a workaround is it safe to have a shell script run at boot time

!# /bin/bash
mount /dev/hdb /mnt/hdb

what about unmounting at shutdown?
