[SOLVED] Authentication required to mount ............

I have just, whet seems, done a system upgrade after adding a PPA for Amarok;

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports

from How to Install Amarok 2.8 in Ubuntu 13.04, 12.04, Linux Mint | UbuntuHandbook

[URL=ImageShack - Drive_Accesss.jpg]
ImageShack - Best place for all of your image hosting and image sharing needs

It updated rather a large number of programs, such as Kate, Dolphin and Audacity and of course Amarok. Is there a log anywhere I can check out to see what exactly has been updated?
Besides that, the main reason for my question is the screenshot above, why am I being asked to enter my password when the drive should have been automatically mounted at boot?
One reason may be that it is still looking for the ‘pooky2483’ under Ubuntu and NOT the ‘pooky2483’ under Kubuntu. So, how do I change permissions as it’s not just the one drive, its ‘Drive1’ and ‘Drive3’.


mount them through fstab

This is my 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).

proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0

/ was on /dev/sdc1 during installation

UUID=201d2f3e-f865-4912-b852-99b5b24f3457 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1

swap was on /dev/sda2 during installation

The new ones I want to mount are at the bottom but I don’t know what other details to add after the ‘ext4’

Probably not a great idea to automount the other partition that have Linux OS’s on them … start manipulating files on those and you may change the ownership/permissions.

But for those without an OS try:-

UUID=xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx /mount/point ext4 defaults 0 0

Sorted, ta.
I also had a look at the fstab for my original Ubuntu12.04 install (The one that still won’t boot for some reason)and saw ‘default 0 0’ but wasn’t 100% sure.

No problem :slight_smile:
