[zombtux@manjaro ~]$ ls /run/media && ls /run/media/* zombtux a80b6f7e-3b31-4610-ab6b-cbb6aba371cf [zombtux@manjaro ~]$
Yeah … I think what you should probably do is mount it anyways since its always going to be connected.
/etc/fstab you need to add line
UUID=a80b6f7e-3b31-4610-ab6b-cbb6aba371cf /mnt/storage ext4 defaults,noatime 0 0
So yours will look like this:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may # be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if # disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> UUID=9A41-1D82 /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 2 UUID=f7524506-676d-4607-9feb-e433b8dbba62 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1 UUID=03963560-e379-41f8-b704-ed66e7e3df83 swap swap defaults,noatime 0 2 UUID=a80b6f7e-3b31-4610-ab6b-cbb6aba371cf /mnt/storage ext4 defaults,noatime 0 0
Reboot and tell me if you see it mounted as /mnt/storage
When i try enter the first line have error message no file or no folder in this type
What do you mean?
I didnt provide any commands … it was a line you need to add to a file…
In order to edit the file … just open it with kate.
Or you can do it in the terminal:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
ok i have past in terminal what key for save ?
You mean to exit nano? Its Ctrl+X
ok i reboot
ls /mnt/ ls /mnt/storage/
after reboot i got this
[zombtux@manjaro ~]$ ls /mnt/ storage [zombtux@manjaro ~]$ ls /mnt/storage/ Emby lost+found [zombtux@manjaro ~]$
Can you now access the folder using emby in browser ?
(by navigating to
with your command we have change location ? now is in mnt not in run/media ?
We changed where it mounts. Now that partition will always mount to
and we created the emby folder with the correct permissions
Alright… I am going to modify my first ‘roundup’ instructions here.
How to use a secondary drive or partition as an emby media library:
First install and enable emby media server:
sudo pacman -S emby-server systemctl enable emby-server --now
/etc/fstab to mount your external partition. We will use
Find your storage drive/partition UUID with
Then add line (using your own UUID and filesystem format)
UUID=a80b6f7e-3b31-4610-ab6b-cbb6aba371cf /mnt/storage ext4 defaults,noatime 0 0`
Then we will create our emby library and give emby permissions
sudo mkdir /mnt/storage/emby-library sudo chown emby:emby /mnt/storage/emby-library
Then browse to
http://localhost:8096 and set up your things.
i drop my movie in same place on my hdd right ?
I am not entirely sure what you mean.
If you select that directory for emby to use … then thats its library.
(as in where the movies/files/whatever go I assume)
ok its just emby dont view my movie i need give access to each movie or ?
I dont think so.
How are you adding them?
(again … I have never used emby … I dont know if you use the application itself to add them … or you drop them in that folder … or …)
ok emby have scan my movie now thx verry much cscs verry apreciate
