I have Arch Linux running on my Raspberry Pi. I added the following line to my fstab file:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/MyBook ntfs defaults 0 0
for a while this worked fine, the device was mounted automatically at startup. I installed transmission-cli and was downloading some stuff when the Pi seemed to die. I turned it off and on again and noticed the drive wasn't mounted. If I run
sudo mount -a the drive will be mounted again just fine, but why is it not doing this at startup anymore?
