    Re: How to fstab

    Ah, thanks Bohdi.

    I am just developing some stand-alone programs to perform various scientific calculations. I like to keep the code and binaries together on my 'data' disc, as the binaries are of no use to anyone except me.

    If I create a ~/bin folder, does Ubuntu include it in the search path? What is the order of search? I think it is something like:

    /usr/local/bin first, followed by
    /usr/bin,
    then ... ?

    On a separate hard disc is my system disc, which holds a minimal /home directory, just to provide configuration info to the system programs like mplayer, etc. So I think this is a fairly clean separation between the things I do and what Ubuntu does.

    I backup my system disc now and then using 'dd' to another spare disc. I use rsync to back up my data disc, to a different spare disc.

    I suppose I could move my development environment back to /home, but I rather like the way things are set up now. Except for this 'suid' business.

    That all sounds reasonable to me, nothing wrong with it.

    To see your path :

    Code:
    echo $PATH
    If you have a ~/bin it should be the last item on the list.

    Re: How to fstab

    Added a link to Pysdm, a gui tool to configure fstab.

    pysdm is in the Ubuntu repositories and I have been taking it for a spin on Zenix. In general it works quite well.

    Hurrah! - I have been recommending pysdm for years to people that just want a nice, simple GUI to manage their disks.

    Why packages like this - which are basically essential for any user who does not want to be forced to learn arcane things like working with the fstab file just to connect one of their disks permanently - are not installed by default is really baffling.

    Great post, helped this noob immensely.

    The above section from the original post contains a typo. The line should instead read

    Server:/share /media/nfs nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,noexec,nosuid


    Thanks
