FSTAB mounts share kodi does not

I am running OSMC 20220.11-1, kodi 18.9, kernal linux 4.19.122-2-osmc on a raspberry pie.

I want to load a nfs NAS shered drive on boot for better performance. All works fine in that the drive is mounted on boot I can check by SSH in from my desktop.

However when i look in automounted drives its not there? i can select movies , TV or any menu item and browse to the share like that.

Why does Kodi not show this as a mounted drive?

here is copy of my fstab

/dev/mmcblk0p1  /boot    vfat     defaults,noatime,noauto,x-systemd.automount    0   0
# rootfs is not mounted in fstab as we do it via initramfs. Uncomment for remount (slower boot)
#/dev/mmcblk0p2  /    ext4      defaults,noatime    0   0
#mount nasmusic /mnt/Server_Music        nfs     noauto,x-systemd.automount  0  0


NFS Share isn’t an automount, that’s for USB drives. If you share under sources, go to browse:

Root file system -> mnt

Thanks Tom.

It’ll automount when you first access it. (That’s what noauto,x-systemd.automount means.)

PS I reformatted your fstab to improve readability.

Hi Tom
yes found that all good now.
thanks very much
