I have several external harddrives that I want to mount to the same point: /media/ext_hd
So I have this in my fstab:
# EXTERNAL HDS LABEL=Elements /media/ext_hd ntfs-3g defaults,user,noauto 0 0 LABEL=olddata /media/ext_hd auto rw,user,noauto 0 0 LABEL=Seagate%202T /media/ext_hd auto rw,user,noauto 0 0 UUID=335F-0049 /media/ext_hd auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
I would like to just type "mount /media/ext_hd" and have mount find which label or UUID matches whatever is currently connected, and mount that. But, instead it balks that label "Elements" can't be found - the first entry.
Mount doesn't appear to search for a best match. Am I missing something? That would seem like a useful feature.
