Description rzm 2000-01-17 22:55:51 EST
It is possible to use LABEL=... and UUID=... in fstab, mount understands
them, but quota do not. I made a quota package version with the following
- updated to quota 1.70
- fixed small error in setquota.c (new in 1.70)
- added LABEL and UUID support. The are both recognized by the programs
  and may be used as arguments. E.g. some fs may be referenced as
  LABEL=WWW (partition was labeled so and this is used in fstab) or
  /i (mount point) or /dev/sdi1 (real name, translated via mtab or
  /proc/mounts if there is no mtab)

The packages (src and sparc RPMs) are available in

I hope they will be useful.

Red Hat Linux 7 and later support UUID/LABEL.
