I've been having some issues with my RAID setup recently on my headless Ubuntu 10.04 server which means one of my mount requests is failing on bootup. Clearly I need to fix the RAID issue, but this machine is in my loft and having to crawl up there with a keyboard just so I can hit S a few times is extremely irritating.
The exact message is as follows:
The disk drive for /drv/photos is not ready yet or not present
Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery
I'd still like Ubuntu to try and mount it, but is there any way to tell it not to wait for the device?
