Good day everyone.
I just have a few questions regarding the fstab file.
Here's the contents of my fstab file:
prescilla@prescilla:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=870a8144-7a6b-4fad-8190-cf7c9ffe598b / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /home was on /dev/sda3 during installation
UUID=6a813473-a00c-4b1c-9dbf-258aa076f3c2 /home ext4 defaults 0 2
# swap was on /dev/sda7 during installation
UUID=4289df24-5d83-4d6e-84e7-8492031900fe none swap sw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
Here are my questions.
1. Before I upgraded to Precise Pangolin, the file system column of the fstab lists the devices with sda1, sda2, etc not with UUID.
I prefer to view devices with sda1 labels not UUID. Is there a way to do that?
2. I have two other partitions but they are not listed in the fstab file. How do I add them to the fstab file.
Here's a view of my partitions with GParted:
