/etc/fstab in NetBSD < current when device numbers are variable
I have the problem with NetBSD finding its root when installed to USB stick, or
other device where the root device number/name could vary. This plays havoc
How do I overcome this problem in NetBSD 6.x and 5.x, or am I limited to HEAD
and GPT, using "NAME="? Though I don't really want to keep up with NetBSD
releng-5 on my modern hardware.
If I go to boot prompt and enter
boot netbsd -a
boot is likely to hang at root-device prompt, requiring Reset button.
Maybe I need to stick with NetBSD-current and GPT?
