Better just don't do devfs :-). But anyway...
Well I'm planing to add kernel version tagging of fstab line enties
to util-linux. This seems to be the only way to make major/minor
transitions (and the more I think about it the more I'm convinced
that they will be unevitable at some not so distant point in time!)
Something along the lines of:
/dev/hdc / ext3 v2.4,defaults 1 1
/ ext3 v2.5,defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
# /dev/loop1 /mnt/1 auto noauto,owner 0 0
# /dev/loop2 /mnt/2 auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
Would be *very* convenient for this purpose and solve 99.9999% percent
of portability problems. Well the above syntax may be the esiest to
imeplement however the below syntax would be perhaps more palatable:
/ ext3 ....
perhaps a similar adjustments would be required for the kernel root parameter of
With something along
one could be living with... The respecive kernel would just pick the entry
which is matching it's version and be fine.
