Re: Supper slow USB disk




The whole idea for changing the content came from the fact that my usb drives were mounting as read-only for non-root users, so I tried to fix it and no luck. So at the end I removed my entries for removable media.
I still have that very problem of read-only removable media for my user.

On the whole, there is no need for entries for removable media
in /etc/fstab, unless you have some really specific need. The wretched
systemd handles automounting of removable drives in a per-user
directory.

If you do put removable media entries in /etc/fstab, you need to put
nofail among the options, or else boot will fail when they are not
present (my first-ever systemd gotcha).
