I've got raspbian installed and need to mount a cifs path after boot is completed. In
fstab I got an entry for this with the
noauto parameter. When using
auto, boot hangs.
So in raspbian, the file is located in
# Print the IP address _IP=$(hostname -I) || true if [ "$_IP" ]; then printf "My IP address is %s\n" "$_IP" fi #mount media storage via cifs if grep -qs '/media/Seagate' /proc/mounts; then echo "Seagate already mounted." else echo "Mounting Seagate.." sudo -n mount /media/Seagate fi exit 0
According to the man page the -n parameter will suppress a password prompt for the
sudo command. This is not the case, however. So I tried editing the
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root. # # Please consider adding local content in /etc/sudoers.d/ instead of # directly modifying this file. # # See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file. # Defaults env_reset Defaults mail_badpass Defaults secure_path="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin" # Host alias specification # User alias specification # Cmnd alias specification # User privilege specification root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL # Allow members of group sudo to execute any command %sudo ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL # See sudoers(5) for more information on "#include" directives: #includedir /etc/sudoers.d pi ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
Only the %sudo line is changed. I assume root to be in group sudo and since the %sudo line is after the root line, no password should be required. Note that root does not have a password anyways on raspbian, I can fill anything at the password prompt.
Any suggestions? Other approaches like crontab may also be suitable
EDIT 1 Further info: there is
on top of the file; the '-e' parameter apparently makes it not halt on errors. The permissions are
