That would be much better. I'm probably going to run into trouble once
I get the cable to connect my SCSI disks since there is no way to tell
in which order disks will be detected :(
What do you do with entries like this in /dev/disk/by-uuid/:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-11-25 10:13 3c8489c2-b7c8-413c-aa3d-5940a7e9ec00 -> ../../md0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 2008-11-25 10:13 450494c6-3adc-4180-8365-60b6bfe57ca3 -> ../../hda8
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-11-25 10:13 562ca497-de85-4724-ae7d-9896ba42d753 -> ../../md1
Put the long number into /etc/fstab instead of /dev/md1? And what
happens when a disk is repartitioned?
And why don't all of the disks show up? md1 is made from partitions on
two SATA disks, /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2, but neither the disks
(/dev/sda, /dev/sdb), nor their partitions (three on each) show
up. Once I connect the SCSI disks, there will be three more
/dev/sdX--- are they going to show up? How do I prevent the system
from messing up the disks?
