However, it is his second query which needs attention. Now that the
system has been installed whatever partitions (above) he has have now to
do be added MANUALLY to fstab. He now mounts the partitions using a
script; he now needs to use the info already available in fstab for the
other partitions and add the new partitions to fstab using the same
info; reboot and the partitions will be mounted (without the script) and
they will also now appear in YaST Partitioner as being mounted.
The fields and format of the /etc/fstab are documented in the man page.

If he has some of the partitions taken care 0f (why not all) during the
install, as I described, why not use those as a pattern?

Isn't there also an option in YAST for this?

I am not sure - but I don't think so. One can use the partitioner but I don't know if it will then redo fstab if one makes alterations to the partitions.

I hardly know; so long as it isn't XML I tend to edit config files by hand.

I feel happier when I can see what I am doing and if what I enter in the config file is wrong I can always restore the backup :-) .


So, if a man cannot spot a problem in the making he cannot really be a wise
leader. But very few men have this gift.
