NTFS issue
« on: August 20, 2016, 09:07:26 PM »
Up to date dCore-jessie:2016.08.18.21.21 does not reliably boot with ntfs-3g support in /etc/fstab, less than 50% of the time, typically need to manually run sudo rebuildfstab after boot. My sceboot.lst items are up to date, unless some sort of update bug, which includes:
ntfs-3g
graphics-3.16.6-tinycore
alsa-modules-3.16.6-tinycore
xorg-intel
alsa-utils
netfilter-3.16.6-tinycore
iptables
fluxbox
conky
dillo
emelfm
smbclient
libfltk1.1-dev

After moving ntfs-3g to the top of my boot list, the probability of getting ntfs-3g support at boot appears better, may just be voodoo, maybe a race condition? Is there anything i should be checking?

Added the command 'rebuildfstab' to the startup script of ntfs-3g, that should fix it.

Imported update, so far so good, will retest across reboots next few days and report any issues, unlikely, thanks.
