Re: About /etc/fstab and LABELs



Could you explain what those LABELs are, and more specifically what creates
them and how does it map them to phsyical disk partitions?

Hi,

They are just strings that are supposed to avoid the need to have
the device names in the fstab. To create them you use 'e2label'.
As the name implies, this trick only works with ext2/ext3 filesystems.
