I've bought a new drive because the drive ran out of room. I've move to var, home and usr to the new drive.
I've got the following in my fstab, but they are not being mounted. So what is wrong my fstab entries.


/dev/sdb1/home /home ext4 onatime,auto, ro 0 0
/dev/sdb1/var /var ext4 onatime,auto 0 1
/dev/sdb1/usr /usr ext4 onatime,auto 0 1

DancesWithWords,

Were /home /var and /user on their own partition or directories under / :?:

fstab entries are

/dev/sdb1 /home ext4 onatime,auto, ro 0 0
/dev/sdb2 /var ext4 onatime,auto 0 1
etc. etc.

They where under directories.

But that was a stupid solution. I've since moved all necessary directories to the large HDD 1.5Tb and let Home on the smaller HDD 200Gb. I just changed the / and Home locations in the fstab file and now everything is fine.

Thanks for taking the time so see if you could help. It was appreciated.
