And I have got it working too, butnot quite to my satisfaction. I will
have to experiment a little more. But I it does not appear to be a
The following fstab entry works on topoi
/dev/hdc1 /reiseroffsite reiserfs defaults 1 2
The following one does not:
/dev/hdc1 /reiseroffsite reiserfs noauto,user 0 0
So it has to do with the context of the mount. Anyway, having it
automatically mounted at boot is not acceptable in the long term
because it is a dismountable volume, and, in fact, most of the time
it sits on a shelf serving as a backup.

debian on topoi,

Mandrake 9.0 on lovesong

Experiment suggests it is something *like* that. Is there some way
of getting it mounted at boot if it is present but ignored if it is
not? The drive is dismountable, but not hot-pluggable. I have to
turn the machine off whenever I insert or remove it. Last time I
had a nonexistent partition mounted at boot it went into some
emergency mode and refused to finish booting until I fixed
But even so, there ought to be a way to export even hot-ploggable drives.
