option target /usb

option device /dev/sda1

option fstype ext4

option options rw,sync

option enabled 0

option enabled_fsck 0

config swap

option device /dev/sda2

I get :

config mount

option target /usb

I get:

I tried reflash and still problems.

If i reboot the pineapple and plug in the usb 3g dongle with sdcard, no trouble with the 2nd fstab config (from darrens howto)

If I leave the 3g card in and reboot then i get :

and /usb is unaccesable.

root@Pineapple:~# touch /usb/test

touch: /usb/test: Input/output error

root@Pineapple:~# touch /mnt/sdb1/test

root@Pineapple:~#

mount -a does nothing

Any ideas?

Wow after hours of pulling my hair out i finally fixed it.

It seemed to try and mount the drives and then mount them again giving multiple mount points.

I put "sleep 10" in /etc/init.d/fstab file after "START=20" and this waits 10 seconds before mounting giving it time to settle in.

This has worked, so i can carry on setting up :) :)

Thank you very much! I had to use "sleep 20" for it to work for me. What USB 3G modem are you using? I was unable to use the MicroSD card in the dongle but everytime I would boot with the 3G and another flash drive it would not work and this fixed it.
