As things now stand, we need to mount our remote NFS shares with /etc/fstab entries that look like this:
DiskStation415:/volume1/ISOs /mnt/ISOs nfs defaults 0 0
and when we start Solus, it's necessary to run
sudo mount -a in order to get them mounted.
A while back, a change was made so that the fstab entries looked like this instead:
DiskStation415:/volume1/ISOs /mnt/ISOs nfs noauto,x-systemd.automount 0 0
The advantage was that there was no longer a need to start a terminal and execute that
mount command each time Solus is launched. The shares were mounted automatically upon startup.
But that lasted only a short time. I no longer remember what the conflict was, but by the next update we needed to revert to the original scheme and need to mount all shares manually after every restart for every machine.
My question is whether the current situation is a forever thing, or there's some hope that we may still someday be able to go back to the
automount processing that once worked so well for some of us.
