Subject: [gentoo-user] OT: Question re: UUID
Date: Mon, 21 Apr 2008 14:38:02
1 I have noticed in some distros (namely Ubuntu) that the fstab uses
2 UUID's rather than /dev references. Is this a better way?
4 Does it eliminate the problem of /dev references changing when another
5 drive, i.e., an external USB drive, is plugged in? The /dev references
6 may change but the UUID's in fstab wouldn't, would they?
