Mounting a second drive
« on: January 09, 2012, 01:42:17 pm »
I cannot find a way of permanently mounting a second drive (sdb). It is formatted as a single partition (sdb1). I made an edit to fstab with the mount address as /public and rebooted but that didn't bring it up. I am unfamilar with VL, only installing version 7.0 for the first time yesterday on a 512Mb desktop. It is quite impressive.

Please post your fstab file. There is probably just a missing option or such.

Did you create the /public directory for the mountpoint?

I feel a bit of of an idiot. I hadn't known about vasm. I encountered it this morning and solved the problem. Apologies for wasting your time.
