comment Why do I get mail when I unplug my adapter?
maybe because of udev timeouts; you're not supposed to run stuff directly from udev if it's going to e.g. sleep for 60 seconds.

comment Can a systemd dependency be applied only to a unit's “ExecStart” action?
Scratch that, I just read your post comment about systemd-cryptsetup and RequiresMountsFor

I'm quite surprised. I admit I haven't tested this. However I wouldn't have expected that systemd would detect the service accessing the filesystem & generate a dependency like that. Does a dependency show up in systemctl list-dependencies?

actually your override seems wrong. surely you should have After= as well. "If two units have no ordering dependencies between them, they are shut down or started up simultaneously". if it's happening to work at the moment, you could try replacing Requires with After and it might happen to work how you want it :P. not recommended tho.

comment Why isn't sda1 showing up in dev and how can I fix that?
Unless you really want to hack udev, or hack your broken system image to downgrade udev / mount devtmpfs, I think you found the right solution. However you need to check if /dev/ is a normal tmpfs. In that case it won't survive reboot. There used to be init scripts that created nodes in the tmpfs. Possibly copying from /dev/.static/dev?. So you'd want to create a node there too.

I'm pretty sure your /dev/ is not devtmpfs. E.g. it contains MAKEDEV. This is an ancient script which was used to create device nodes for all commonly used devices, regardless of whether they exist on the current system.

Definitely not the USB driver. Maybe you have a recent version of udev, which never creates device nodes. It assumes /dev/ is a devtmpfs filesystem, where the device nodes are created by the kernel. Check the NEWS for udev 176.

comment Automounting NTFS Hard drive in Centos 7
If the Mount Options dialog is lying (about the additional auth bit) then I have no idea, sorry.

ah, nofail should avoid any problems booting. The changes will take effect immediately. (but it can be a good idea to reboot to check that actually works). However as I said if you boot with it plugged in, I bet it gets mounted so only root can read or write the files. Solution: either uncheck the "at startup" tickbox, or add option uid=myusername. Unchecking seems simplest to me.
