i would like to automount my backuftp with curlftpfs, i added

curlftpfs#<serverip> /backup/backupftp fuse allow_other,uid=0,gid=0,umask=0022 0 0

in /etc/fstab

and put the login details in /root/.netrc

mount -a

works but when i reboot the backupftp doesn't get mounted, i've got the same config on another machine where it does work.

dmesg doesn't show any errors, how can i debug this?

curlftpfs#<serverip> /backup/backupftp fuse allow_other,uid=0,gid=0,umask=0022,_netdev 0 0

_netdev requires network to be available before the mount, which is my suspicion why it isn't working.

i tried it but without success, still doesn't get mounted. – supernova Mar 10 '13 at 19:54
Same issue, what now? – danger89 Jun 23 '14 at 20:04
If you can mount -a successfully, copy the line from /etc/mtab to /etc/fstab which corresponds to the mount you want. – colechristensen Jul 3 '14 at 16:48
