Do a board search for




Youu can also read our FAQ section. Here's some stuff to read





Basically, in order to mount any partition, you need to add an entry to /etc/fstab for that partition. fstab is processed on startup to fully mount "EVERYTHING". If you cleared out your fstab file, your system wouldn't startup.


Note: Make a backup copy before you start working with this file. Just in case you need to restore it.


Note: You can test your changes by unmounting the partition you referred too and then typing


mount -a


This will mount all fstab entries.
