Persistant mount points are created with a file called "fstab". this is located in /etc .
The file has columns of <device> <mountpoint> <fs type> <options> <dump> <pass>
The last two are "oldfashioned". I don't think they are actively used by the system anymore.
So you'd add:
/dev/sda1 /media/ssd/ssd ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
The file on my UbuntuPC has some "help" on what needs to be in the file, inside the file itself. On my pi the file just has a few default entries: Leave those alone and add the line you want to add.
Roger thank you so much. That was exactly what I needed.
I have a pi3 in a pi-desktop box, with a samsung ssd.
Everything works as far as the box itself, and partitioning the ssd using GParted.
I followed instructions to mount the ssd using:
> sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/ssd/ssd
with /media/ssd/ssd directory created earlier and permissions set per instructions
However the mounting location does not persist through a power cycling.
That is, if I power down, then back up, the ssd is mounted to the default location of /media/pi
How can I get the ssd to always be mounted to /media/ssd/ssd through a power cycling?
