I have the following /etc/fstab entry which fails to execute at system boot/startup:
/dev/sdb1 /media/ssd256 ext4 rw,user,exec,umask=000 0 0
sudo mount -a
mount: /media/ssd256: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.
However, if I sudo gparted and mount via its UI, then the device is mounted. I am not sure how to fix this issue.
I changed the options to use
defaults instead of
sudo mount -a also works.
The question now is: what is wrong with my initial options?
