When I give "mount" at the command line, everything looks just fine : /dev/sda2 on / type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered) none on /proc type proc (rw) usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw) /dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered) none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620) none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw) /dev/sdb1 on /usr/local/pgsql type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=writeback) /dev/sda3 on /usr/local/pgsql/wal type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered) It looks like the labels are not really used, just the mount-points. Or could this cause other problems I am not aware of? Everything seems to be working just fine, for several months now... ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 3: if posting/reading through Usenet, please send an appropriate subscribe-nomail command to [EMAIL PROTECTED] so that your message can get through to the mailing list cleanly
