Mount problems

I’ve created a new partition on a 4TbHd (see PREVIOUS thread) and now, after editing the fstab I am getting errors;

When I try and open EXT-01
An error occurred while accessing ‘Home’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdk1: Command-line `mount “/media/EXT-03”’ exited with non-zero exit status 32: [mntent]: warning: no final newline at the end of /etc/fstab mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdk1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

When I try and open EXT-03
An error occurred while accessing ‘Home’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdi1: Command-line `mount “/media/EXT-02”’ exited with non-zero exit status 12: [mntent]: warning: no final newline at the end of /etc/fstab NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount ‘/dev/sdi1’: Invalid argument The device ‘/dev/sdi1’ doesn’t seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?

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).

That doesn’t look like you have a /home partition - is that right? It’s not compulsory to have one (it’ll be mounted under /), but it’s a standard to have one (especially when you can spare the space). Do you use LVM or RAID at all?

The important part comes afer the “Also…” below…

According to blkid /dev/sdk1 is labeled EXT-01 … so why are you trying to mount it at /media/EXT-03 ?

and

According to blkid /dev/sdi1 is labeled EXT-03 … so why are you trying to mount it at /media/EXT-02 ?

and

According to blkid /dev/sdj1 is labeled EXT-02 … yet is being mount at /media/EXT-01 ?

any reason you’re mounting them somewhere at odds with their labels ? … there’s nothing to stop you doing this, I’m just wondering ?

[b]ALSO…

according to blkid, /dev/sdi1 is formatted EXT4, yet you’re trying to mount it as NTFS (via ntfs-3g) in fstab

That was a cock-up on my part - wrote the wrong drive letter.
Think it’s sorted now;

You’re welcome.

Thanks for pointing it out Mark, it usually is something so simple that it can be missed.
