I have an entry for /dev/sda1 at /boot in my /etc/fstab, why doesn't this get mounted automatically?

I have:

Code:

/dev/sda1 /boot ext4 noauto,noatime 1 2


However I can perfectly fine mount this myself after the system has started:

Code:

mount /dev/sda1 /boot


When I execute mount, it is clearly an ext4 file system:

Code:

/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext4 (rw)


Why doesn't it get mounted automatically on boot?

deltamalloc,

noauto is set so it doesn't mount a boot time - just remove it :wink:

dev/sda1 /boot ext4 noauto,noatime 1 2

The entry in /etc/fstab that you showed us has noauto set. That is why it is not automatically mounting.

Consider reading: man fstab
