Description Ricardo Veguilla 2004-10-09 23:23:13 EDT
For labeled partitions, kudzu should use the LABEL when writing the
fstab entry. For example, if an ext3 partition labeled "DATA" is
found, kudzu should add the following entry to fstab 

LABEL=DATA      /media/DATA   ext3   options X X

Actually, hal and fstab-sync will now do this by default if the label
meets certain criteria:

 1. There needs to be a label
 2. The label must be ASCII
 3. The label must not be an absolute path (e.g. /home)

Also, characters that is not alpha nor digits will be converted to _.

This is in hal-0.4.0-3.
