Hi all. Just to give some background on my problems: Using gnome and enlightenment (as wm). I had a couple of apps open (xchat, gaim, gkrellm). Most importantly, IMO, i had a cd-rom mounted. Someone in my house went to my computer, logged out and rebooted. This is while all the apps were still open and the cd still mounted.

Now everytime I boot, I receive an error:

Code:
Some local filesystem failed to mount


When I insert a cd in the tray and reboot, sure enough it mounts. I edited my fstab file to comment out my cdrom line, and the error does not show up on reboot. So basically my guess is the /etc/init.d/localmount script is attempting to mount filesytems listed in fstab. Here's a snippet of the localmount file which I think is responsible:

Code:
start() {
    # Mount local filesystems in /etc/fstab.
    ebegin "Mounting local filesystems"
    mount -at nocoda,nonfs,noproc,noncpfs,nosmbfs,noshm >/dev/null
    eend $? "Some local filesystem failed to mount"


Here's the line for my cdrom in /etc/fstab:

Code:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom1  /mnt/cdrom  iso9660 noatuo,users,ro 0 0


According to this, it should not be attempting to mount /mnt/cdrom at all. Or am I wrong? :? Any hints on the fstab file and the issue at hand would be appreciated :)

There's a typo in that fstab line. It reads 'noatuo'. It should be 'noauto'.

We all make that kind of mistake.
