I have a vfat partition. fstab has
/dev/hdb3 /mnt/music vfat auto,user,rw 1 0
It mounts at boot but will only allow root access. If root unounts and then user mounts all is well.
If I change to
/dev/hdb3 /mnt/music vfat noauto,user,rw 1 0
then user can mount quite happily and all is well.
Any thoughts on why the auto mount selector stops me accessing the partition?
