Booting mounting Samba drive on boot

Postby bengo » 2018-01-14 21:59

Good evening everyone. I recently got a Tinkerboard so I can try and mess around with Linux and try and learn some things. I installed TinkerOS which I believe is Debian with no problems and got the everything logged in. I am trying to mount a share from my NAS on boot but am having some issues. This is what I have in /etc/fstab
Code: Select all
// /media/pwiiq cifs credentials=/home/pat/.smbcred,rw,_netdev,gid=1000,uid=1001,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

When I reboot it doesnt mount automatically. It shows up on the left side of the file browser but when I click on it it says "Only system administators have the permission to do this". I then run sudo mount -a and everything works fine. Im not sure what I am doing wrong. I did chown the /media/pwiiq folder to be owned by my user.
