Vfat partition always mounts to /tmp/run/mountd/sda1

I have added an mSATA card to my Turris router.

On this card I have placed a vfat partion and one for LVM.

I don’t want to mount the vfat partition.

Now the vfat is always automatically mounted to /tmp/run/mountd/sda1 regardless what I do.

My last idea was to specify my own mountpount (e.g. /mnt/sda1) and to check how the system will behave.

Now the system behaves very strange: I have two mounts now: one in /tmp/run/mountd/sda1 and one in /mnt/sda1.

What can be done to convice the Turris not to mount my vfat partition?


May i ask what you going to use vfat partition for? Or why you even choose vfat as filesystem?

Could you give the output of this command:

cat /etc/config/fstab

Currently it looks like this:

config global
option anon_swap '0’
option anon_mount '0’
option delay_root '5’
option check_fs '0’
option auto_mount '0’
option auto_swap ‘0’

config mount
option uuid '1253373f-d88b-4286-b7ba-4e2b14ad9d73’
option enabled '1’
option target ‘/srv’

config swap
option enabled '1’
option device ‘/dev/mapper/vgTurris-swap’

config mount
option uuid '6075-3484’
option target '/mnt/sda1’
option enabled ‘1’

Oke, could you also give me the output of this.

In your /etc/config/fstab file,


config mount
option uuid '6075-3484'
option target '/mnt/sda1'
option enabled '1'


config mount
option uuid '6075-3484'
option target '/mnt/sda1'
option enabled '0'

Same result.

Did you give the Omnia a reboot?

Yes - I rebooted the device after this change.

Just a moment. Gonna take a look around.

Could you give the output of this…

cat /etc/config/mountd

config mountd mountd
option	timeout		60
option	path		/tmp/mounts/

I thought i had read this issue somewhere else…

LuCi–>Startup–>mountd click on “enabled” (which disables it on startup and click on “stop” all the way to the right to stop the process now)

Let me know how it went.

I did this:

/ec/init.d/mountd disable

After reboot I was rid of this mount.

Thank you!

Very nice!! GREAT SUCCESS!!

Please mark this topic as “solved”.

But it also stops the automatic mounting of USB keys, no? (I have the same problem and I do not want to disable automatic mounting.)

go to LuCI > Mount Points > Anonymous Mount

Honestly mountd should never get installed since it’s a legacy package
