Pine hangs up on boot if I add my exFAT USB drive to /etc/fstab - pqueiro - 06-10-2019

I can mount it manually fine off the CLI but if I add it to /etc/fstab it hangs the entire system when booting. I've got it on fstab as

Code:
/dev/sda2    /mnt/verbatim    exfat    defaults    0    1

Am I missing something in the options? Is it just checking something on boot and taking a long time? (it's a 2TB drive)

Given that it works if I mount it manually, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here  Sad

EDIT: setting pass to 0 and changing defaults to rw,auto,user,gid=1000,uid=1000 seems to have fixed it. I'm not 100% sure but I suspect it may have been the pass going to 0 that did it (as noted earlier in my original post, it's a 2TB USB3.0 drive and checking that filesystem would certainly have taken a long time). This means I have to be more hands-on about checking and maintaining the file system, but at least it now boots and mounts it correctly.
