Re: NSLU2 (Slug) fails to boot with second drive connected
I put a 2 in the fstab due to some comments in the man page.
The sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8) program to deter-
mine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time. The
root filesystem should be specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other
filesystems should have a fs_passno of 2. Filesystems within a drive
will be checked sequentially, but filesystems on different drives will
be checked at the same time to utilize parallelism available in the
hardware. If the sixth field is not present or zero, a value of zero
is returned and fsck will assume that the filesystem does not need to
When I ran "mount -a" I got the following error.
[mntent]: line 9 in /etc/fstab is bad
This line of course corresponded to the last line in the file or the
line that was not mounting. I messed with some various options and I
now have it working with the following line.
/dev/sda1 /disk2 ext3 defaults 0 2
I think this is strange as a previous email had me run a command
cfdisk /dev/sda and it returned that it was an NTFS partion yet I did
format it with mkfs.ext3 when I reformatted the disk the other day.
Now it is mounting automatically on boot.
Thank everyone who have helped.

The last parameter of the /disk2 mount line in your fstab is the number 2.
I don't recall ever using that number there, only 0 or 1 - mostly 0.
Maybe that is the problem. You could try ato add "auto" to the options
string, but I think "defaults" is supposed to include that.
Then again, I'm no expert in the fstab syntax.
Does disk2 mount manually after boot when you type "mount -a" ?
