    Nothing written in fstab

    I've been having a lot of problems solving my HDD mounting problems and renaming. It finally worked, but I had to delete everything from fstab. As crazy as it sounds, it worked, when I turn my computer on, they automatically mount. They are all working fine. I will attach screen shots too.

    As you can see my fstab is blank, I was just wondering, is this a problem? Or is it totally normal?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention, I tried to open fstab using the following commands.

    Code:
    sudo -s
    cd /etc
    gedit fstab
    or

    Code:
    cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
    sudo gedit fstab
    I am using Ubuntu 10.10.

    Of course, your /etc/fstab file is not blank. But you'd better not touch it, unless you know exactly what you want to achieve.

    It is, I deleted everything from there, because my mounting wasnt working. So I saved it blank, and it worked. Everything got back in place.
