10.4: Move Users directory to another partition
Authored by: martycastilla on Apr 23, '07 10:59:52AM

I'm glad to see someone posted a reference to /etc/fstab using UUID over LABEL. Are there any drawbacks to the UUID approach? My Boot and User partitions are on the same drive with RAID 1 mirror. I had thought I tried the UUID approach and ran across a problem.

Using LABEL is fine if you NEVER rename the drive. LABEL looks for the named disk. UUID NEVER changes (even if reformated)!
