I recently used the Ubuntu update manager to upgrade the kernel on my netboook to 2.6.28-15. The problem is that the new kernel no longer auto-mounts my SD card, which happens to contain my /home directory. The funny thing is, if I use the "recovery mode" grub option, and then "resume normal" the card gets mounted. How do I ensure my sd card is mounted on boot?

See fstab.

I'll double check fstab, I didn't realize that updating the kernel would overwrite it. The SD Card was mounting fine before the upgrade. – nathan Sep 25 '09 at 12:07
Not an fstab problem. I've double check it, and fstab is fine. – nathan Oct 20 '09 at 0:10
