View Full Version : Updated /etc/fstab During Boot

06-26-2005, 03:15 PM
My hard drive installation of Knoppix updates the file /etc/fstab during boot. It also goes through some configuration during boot that I think would be unnecessary for a hard drive installation. Is there a file(s) that I can edit to change this behavior?

Thanks for any advice, jimbo

Add 'nofstab' to the "append=" line in /etc/lilo.conf. You must be root to edit this file. Then save & re-run lilo to implement the changes.

Thanks for your reply. I took a different approach. I added a line to the file, /usr/sbin/rebuildfstab, that reads, "exit 0". This is the first executable line in the file which results in an immediate exit from the script.

Thanks, jimbo
