Mount a Drive with Normal User Access

How do I do this? Even better, can I mount it automatically. I know this has something to do with /etc/fstab
What should I append to /dev /sda2 /mnt/mac to make it mount automatically and allow the normal user access?
It's where I store my music library.

Re: Mount a Drive with Normal User Access

Mount options are described in man fstab and man mount , look under the section for the filesystem of the device in question.

You can identify the Device with the UUID (see http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UUID#by-uuid for more details). After all, it is important to know, which fs you use on this Partition. When you get this information, you can set the Device in youre fstab http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fst … efinitions

Every question you asked is answered in the Wiki - please read it and then try and implement it yourself. If it doesn't work, then come back with a description of what you tried, what errors you got and any other material you have come across.

This is help-vampirism.
