comment Mount NTFS Partition on Startup in Ubuntu
@Gilles Thanks, but following the above procedure I got mount: only root can mount /dev/sda6 on /home/user/mountPoint when I ran the mount /home/user/mountPoint command. Any idea why this might have happened? fstab contains /dev/sda6 /home/user/mountPoint ntfs rw,auto,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0,exec,fmask=0022 0 0

comment Does `Segmentation fault` message come under STDERR?
Thanks! How would I trap it in shell script? I want to run some other commands depending on whether seg-fault has occurred or not. How would one put an if condition using this?

can we prepend nohup to any command that we might type in bash? If yes, how to make it prepended by default?
