I made a new partition on a 60GB drive that was the 4th primary
partition on that drive.
Added this line to /etc/fstab
/dev/hda4 /pub ext3
auto,user,dev,exec,rw,async 0 0
I checked /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and the command is there to use 'mount
-a' to mount the
dir at boot. But it fails to do so. mounting it manually does work and
the dir is rw
accessible to all users, as I wanted. The permissions are set correctly.
As root command line 'mount -a' also fails to mount the dir.
I added a line mount /pub to /etc/rc.d/rc.local and
the mount point is properly
brought up and dir is useable for all users.
But why doesn't 'mount -a' work at boot in the rc.sysinit script as I
assume it should?
Wrong assumption? Bug? dumb user?
