Need help with mount, fstab and mtab [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hello, after addressing the problem descibed in this post: https://mandrivausers...-to-ntfssolved/ I got a weird beavior:

 

 

1 - I have 2 NTFS partitions mounted in /mnt/windows and /mnt/data.

2 - When I umount both partitions, everything goes well.

3 - If I use mount /mnt/data as root the partition is successfully mounted.

4 - If I use mount /mnt/windows I get this error "mount: couldn't find /mnt/windows in fstab or mtab"

5 - If I use mount /dev/sda2 instead of mount /mnt/windows, the partition is successfully mounted.

6 - Both entries appear in fstab.

 

The problem seems to be the name. If I tell mount to mount the folder /mnt/windows, it doesn't work, but if I call it /dev/sda2 it works. Also, the entries in fstab are identical for both partitions.

 

 

What could the problem be?

Can you post the contents of /etc/fstab so we can see more info. Maybe something in here as awry.

Here is my fstab now:

 

# Entry for /dev/sda5 :
UUID=a49824a9-3fcb-418d-887e-c106745480ca / ext4 relatime 1 1
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
# Entry for /dev/sda6 :
UUID=877148664FEFB610 /mnt/datos ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
# Entry for /dev/sda2 :
UUID=F2EAD096EAD05905 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
# Entry for /dev/sda7 :
UUID=db6f70f7-9131-464d-ad54-d982690ce008 swap swap defaults 0 0

I solved the problem doing the following:

 

* I deleted both entries in fstab

* Then I deleted the folder in the filesystem

* I then re-created everything using MCC.

* Everythong goes well now.

 

Thank you for your support.
