I need to create a FreeBSD installation on an SSD drive (connected via a USB adaptor), and would like to do so manually so as to avoid the use of an installation CD, PXE or sysinstall.
1. When creating an /etc/fstab file, does the order in which entries appear have any significance? I've noticed that when using sysinstall approach, the entries appear in the following order: # Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass# /dev/ad0s1b none swap sw 0 0 /dev/ad0s1a / ufs rw 1 1 /dev/ad0s1e /tmp ufs rw 2 2 /dev/ad0s1f /usr ufs rw 2 2 /dev/ad0s1d /var ufs rw 2 2 Would a device alphabetical order (as used by bsdlabel) work? 2. I don't expect the system to swap, so can I dispense with a swap entry and have everything function normally (no error messages, etc.)? 3. Will adding `noatime' to / or any other filesystem have any consequences? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
