[SOLVED] Unable to mount partition at boot
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:22:04 am »
I'm tryint to mount the partition I've named 'HOME' but I'm having problems.

Code: [Select]
sudo blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="646f747b-e9d0-4016-be6f-bc81e3ccf046" TYPE="swap" PARTUUID="a06af458-ae19-44be-8742-3c13ad1195c3"
/dev/sda2: UUID="095ba79a-1767-49a2-ae8f-976272ca9766" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="1786eb4a-689f-4159-ae64-9c1033124212"
/dev/sda3: UUID="a1d15776-2c0d-4982-8fc9-3c5683c819d8" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="e852b203-fd36-4d00-88e8-e157ac6f649a"
/dev/sda4: UUID="62EA-E0B8" TYPE="vfat" PARTUUID="7a7d9fb0-9af0-4603-832e-b5e723fefc80"
/dev/sda5: UUID="028d16f2-a397-4ec0-be8c-9c02f78c9ca0" TYPE="ext4" PARTLABEL="HOME" PARTUUID="ee7d7dde-540b-429a-b44d-9a50d8ea3b69"

Code: [Select]
sudo kate /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

#
/dev/sda5: PARTLABEL="HOME" PARTUUID="ee7d7dde-540b-429a-b44d-9a50d8eaa3b69" TYPE="ext4"

I've also tried 028d16f2-a397-4ec0-be8c-9c02f78c9ca0 with just LABEL & UUID

Where do you want it mounted ?

I don't quite get your question, 'Where do I want it mounted', I didn't know I had a choice of where it could be mounted!

These are the drives/partitions;
/dev/sda1: UUID="646f747b-e9d0-4016-be6f-bc81e3ccf046" TYPE="swap" PARTUUID="a06af458-ae19-44be-8742-3c13ad1195c3"
/dev/sda2: UUID="095ba79a-1767-49a2-ae8f-976272ca9766" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="1786eb4a-689f-4159-ae64-9c1033124212"
/dev/sda3: UUID="a1d15776-2c0d-4982-8fc9-3c5683c819d8" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="e852b203-fd36-4d00-88e8-e157ac6f649a"
/dev/sda4: UUID="62EA-E0B8" TYPE="vfat" PARTUUID="7a7d9fb0-9af0-4603-832e-b5e723fefc80"
/dev/sda5: UUID="028d16f2-a397-4ec0-be8c-9c02f78c9ca0" TYPE="ext4" PARTLABEL="HOME" PARTUUID="ee7d7dde-540b-429a-b44d-9a50d8ea3b69"

The one in RED is the one I want to auto-mount.

I'm tryint to mount the partition I've named 'HOME' but I'm having problems.

Are you trying to mount that partition as /home ?
If so then add to /etc/fstab:
Code: [Select]
UUID=028d16f2-a397-4ec0-be8c-9c02f78c9ca0 /home           ext4    defaults        0       2

That will mount that parition as /home on next boot
Note, both UUID and PARTUUID points to the same partition

Thanks SeZo, I've just updated fstab and will know the result next time I reboot.
