Assigning permissions in fstab for Mount point

Noob and first hello.

I've succefully mounted an Array using the usual mount cmd in fstab. However I haven't had any luck at passing authenication to the mount point as I have to input my user password on first touch. So far I have tried the following:

/dev/sdb1 /media/RaidExt auto defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022 0 1

My storage drive is a gpt Ext4 partition and I realize from futher reading that 'unmask' is for vfat or NTFS formated drives, so redundant in this use case. I've also tried chmod 777 on the mount point to no result.

This Array is the storage area for my ISO's and KVM VM images which also need permission to access R/W. I originally had this working in CrunchBang++ but borked my Nvidia driver install (old dual headed Quadro FX4400), so decided to jump into Helium as my KVM launching point.

Re: Assigning permissions in fstab for Mount point

FWIW I use this for my data partition:

UUID=[your uuid number]  /mnt/data       ext4    rw,user,auto    0       2

Re: Assigning permissions in fstab for Mount point

Oophs.. Must have entered the wrong uuid, as the dependancy failed on startup, I'm dropped into emergency mode with root account locked and Press Enter to continue doesn't work.

How do i get access to make changes to fstab from here... ?

Live CD got me fixed up. Time to try again...
