My question is regarding /etc/fstab synax.
How can I use spaces and quote symbols in my device name?
I tried to use double quotes and backslash, but no luck so far.
I.e. I'd like to put the following line:
/dev/msdosfs/MY FLASH /mnt/flash msdosfs rw,noauto 0 0
| "Nobody wants to say how this works. |
| Maybe nobody knows ..." |
| Xorg.conf(5) |
/dev/msdosfs/MY\ FLASH /mnt/flash msdosfs rw,noauto 0 0
"/dev/msdosfs/MY FLASH" /mnt/flash msdosfs rw,noauto 0 0
should work, but i guess you tried these?
The alternative way would be to use the UUID of the drive, as that wont have
spaces in, and is more versatile than /dev/das1a type syntax
Yep, neither is working.
After all I used glabel to generate a new label and avoid reformatiing my volume.
