I basically stumbled upon a problem I need help with.
I mounted a HDD. In my /home folder I created several symlinks that point to folders on that HDD. Unfortunately I am unable to create the symlink for the Videos folder, however all other folders worked fine.
This is what I did
UUID=LONG-NUMBER /mnt/md0_crypt ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,nofail,exec,auto,nouser,async,relatime 0 0
rm -r -f /home/me/Musik rm -r -f /home/me/Videos ln -s /mnt/md0_crypt/me/Musik /home/me/Musik ls -s /mnt/md0_crypt/me/Videos /home/me/Videos
When I try to create the Videos symlink it fails
ls: Access to '/home/me/Videos' not possible: File or directory not found /mnt/md0_crypt/me/ videos: 0 in total
I used chmod 700, because I want to be the only user that has access to the mounted HDD. I don’t know if I forgot something, mount related..
Interestingly I get this:
>>>ls -l /mnt/md0_crypt/me total 52 drwx------ 13 me me 20480 25. Okt 2019 Musik drwxr-xr-x 2 me me 4096 21. Jul 20:12 Videos
Just a typo, look at step 6 in your question:
rm -r -f /home/me/Videos
ls -s /mnt/md0_crypt/me/Videos /home/me/Videos, but you cannot
lsthis folder, you just removed it.
The error message says
ls: Access to '/home/me/Videos' not possible, it's not complaining that
ls is failing.
