I'm going to make a suggestion here - don't mount the drive by device name (/dev/sdb
), but use either the volume label or uuid. System updates have been known to change the order in which available drives are recognized, and, hence, the device designation. I tend to use volume labels in /etc/fstab, as shown below:
LABEL=Rawhide /mnt/Rawhide ext4 defaults 0 0
but using uuids
UUID=bd6fcfb5-3696-4109-bfb0-c1ad6aeb70b1 /mnt/Rawhide ext4 defaults 0 0
avoids the potential problem of two partitions with the same label on different drives.
