Weird fstab problem...
This one has me a little stumped. I had to reinstall Gentoo last night because of some major screw ups on my part, and now a line in my fstab no longer works.
/dev/hdb1 /home/tyler/storage reiserfs users,uid=1000,gid=100 0 0
This wont mount, and when I try and do it manually like below I get that error.
However when I mount it somewhere else, like mount -t reiserfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/test it works fine. Any ideas?
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
or too many mounted file systems
did you check to see if there is something mounted there.. or attempt to unmout whatever may be on that dir before trying to mount that device there?
There's nothing mounted on there initially, and I can mount /dev/hdb1 /home/tyler/storage manually.
did you copy&&paste the fstab entry or did you type it in yourself? i ask because i was looking at your initial message again and saw that there was no leading / in your fstab entry... so instead of:
it should be:
Oh yeah I copied it but I missed the first /.
try taking out the gid and uid and see what happens :)
Ha didn't know you replied yowwww :)
Anyway I've discovered my regular user can still use it without the uid stuff and it mounts now. Still strange why it wouldn't before but whatever it works now. Thanks for all the input!
i juss dunno why v edit the /etc/fstab file...
instead of that..if v put in an entry in the rc.ocal file..it wud be much cleaner as well as easier..
wat say ya yowww
