I am at a strange text console, 260*67 characters, newcons in FreeBSD-current
amd64, having come back from X, and seem to get blank lines in between,
Here is my /etc/fstab from NetBSD 6.1-STABLE on 8 GB Kingston Data Traveler:
# NetBSD /targetroot/etc/fstab
# See /usr/share/examples/fstab/ for more examples.
/dev/sd0a / ffs rw,log 1 1
/dev/sd0b none swap sw,dp 0 0
kernfs /kern kernfs rw
ptyfs /dev/pts ptyfs rw
procfs /proc procfs rw
/dev/cd0a /cdrom cd9660 ro,noauto
Problem is I don't always know if USB stick will be /dev/sd0, and an internal
media reader can play further havoc with device numbers.
NetBSD-current with NAME= gets around that problem.
What do you do for /etc/fstab?
