Referring to drives by their labels
I've just set up my Debian slug to boot with two drives attached,
since one has the OS on it, while the other is just data.
I initially came across the section entitled "The slug fails to reboot
with 2 drives connected", on this page:
which talks about referring to the root drive by its UUID, and then
using update-initramfs and flash-kernel. I did that, but my swap
partition was still wrong (/dev/sda2 in /etc/fstab, but /dev/sdb2 in
I then found this page:
which covers setting a label on the root partition *and* the swap
partition. However, it doesn't mention update-initramfs/flash-kernel.
I think it would be clearer if Debian/HomePage were to link to
HowTo/MountDisksByLabel. Does anyone have any objections to me merging
the content from Debian/HomePage into HowTo/MountDisksByLabel?
