Is there any advantage of using UUID (which are very long) and a
filesystem label (e.g. LABEL=root) which is shorter and more intuitive?
If you ever have to deal with a disk from another system using labels
you can get into conflicts like trying to deal with two disks with a
label of ROOT. Gets quite annoying. I like to know that MY root disk
will mount because it has the right UUID not because I label it ROOT.
And labels were broken when I switched in the initrd I was trying to use
while UUIDs worked so that's what I stuck with.
How do you determine the UUID?
